The time has come, the ecampus blog said, to speak of many things. Specifically, things relating to graduation. Yes, while it feels like the quarter just barely started, in reality we’re recently past midterms and its time to consider what to do for this very important ceremony.
First, congratulations on graduating! While there’s no doubt it’s been hard work getting to this stage, you should feel proud that you’ve stuck to it and are now almost at the end. In order to make things a little easier for you, we’ve compiled some of the most important information you need to know for graduation.
Good news is, there’s going to be a small party. As we mentioned in an earlier post, SCAD eLearning will host a graduation celebration on Friday June 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. EST. The party will be held at Pulaski Square, just outside of the eLearning offices.
You’ll be able to relax after a hard day spent at graduation rehearsal, as well as meet and greet faculty, staff and other eLearning students. It’ll be a good opportunity for some last minute networking, for those business-oriented among you.
Need more of a reason to stop by the party? Well, it’s also the place to go in order to pick up your tickets to the graduation ceremony. If you’ve received approval from your graduation auditor (which, at this point, it should be a given) then you can stop by and pick up four tickets for the 9 a.m. Presidential Conferment of Degrees and six tickets for the Presentation of Degree ceremony.
The former ceremony will include every graduating student, so expect large crowds and help your guests plan accordingly. The presentation of degrees will be split into two groups. One group will go at 1 p.m., the other at 4 p.m. While this means there will be less of a crowd, you should still advise your guests to arrive at an early time.
But of course, that’s not all. Right after the eLearning graduation celebration, you can take a short walk down to Forsyth Park, where the annual New Alumni Concert will be held. Starting at 7 p.m., the concert will feature Grace Potter and the Nocturnals as well as JJ Grey and Mofro. We’re not very hip to the new jive these days, but a quick search shows that you won’t want to miss it.
Some of these announcements may not be new, but it’s worth refreshing them every now and then. You’ve worked hard for this day, why not make sure you know everything you have to know in order to make it as fun and stress-free as possible?
