GradFest takes place in the UC Ballroom annually a month before commencement takes place. This is a one stop place for seniors to get their caps and gowns, buy alumni gear and announcements, take pictures, and pick up tickets for family members and friends to attend the commencement ceremony. But what if you’re a busy college student who’s a senior and couldn’t attend GradFest, or simply forgot?
According to California State University, Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) website under the Commencement section, tickets must be picked up at the Campus Service Center between April 17- 27. So if you haven’t done so, I would hurry and make sure you get your tickets!
According to Herff Jone’s website, if you order a cap and gown through the website, it will be shipped to your house. You have until April 23, 2018 at 8:59 p.m. to do so.
If you choose to buy a cap and gown at the CSUMB Bookstore, you can do so after May 11, according to CSUMB’s website under the “Order Caps, Gowns, and Announcements” section.
They go on to say, “A limited number of caps, gowns, honor cords, etc. will be available at the stadium the day of Commencement – BUT don’t wait!”
If you’re looking to buy announcements, they can be ordered through the Herff Jones website and shipped to your house.
Any alumni gear, such as a sweater, mug, shirt, license plate frame, and more can be purchased at the CSUMB Bookstore.
