In order to walk in the events that take place on Commencement Day, all graduates must be in academic regalia.

You should not wear regalia to the activities that take place on Class Day. In past years, both graduating students and guests have opted for business casual attire, keeping in mind that the majority of the activities take place on the fields. We encourage you to check the weather that is anticipated for Class Day and Commencement Day, as this may influence your choice of attire.
