Cap and gown ordering information

Fall 2008 graduation is Saturday, December 13, at 11:00 a.m. If you are graduating in December and planning to march, you need to order a cap and gown. The cost of the cap and gown is included in your graduation application fee, which you should have already paid.

Herff Jones Company will be the supplier of regalia for December 2008 graduation. You may place your cap and gown order in one of two ways. (1) Students may meet with the Herff Jones representative on October 6, 2008 in the Campus Bookstore between 12:00 noon and 3:00 pm and order your cap and gown directly from the representative. The representative will only be available for in-person ordering on this one day. (2) You may instead order your cap and gown online. To do this, go to the GSW home page and click on the link titled "Information for upcoming graduates" from October 6 - October 30, 2008. Don't try to do this before October 6 because information from the spring semester is still up there and it'll just confuse you. The deadline for ordering your cap and gown online is October 30.

Cap and gown regalia will be sent to the Campus Bookstore and may be picked up between December 1 -- December 13, 2008 during regular store hours. For those students who do not pre-order caps and gowns, the Bookstore will have a very limited number of caps and gowns in limited sizes, but don't assume there will be one available for you -- order your own!

If you want to order personalized graduation announcements, you can do this through Herff Jones the same way that you place your cap and gown order (i.e., either through the representative on October 6 or online from October 6-30). The cost of announcements is not included in your graduation application fee. Orders for announcements may be charged to a credit card, debit card, or payable money order. Orders will be delivered directly to the address you provide. The Bookstore no longer sells generic (i.e., non-personalized) announcements.

Writing Center Now Open

You may not be aware of this, but GSW now has a Writing Center, staffed with people who can assist you with your writing assignments for your classes. The Center is located in Room 107 of the English Building and is open from 2-8 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays and 1-8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you go, please bring a copy of the instructions for the assignment, a rough draft of your paper (in other words, don't show up with nothing and expect someone else to write your paper for you), and any information you have about how the assignment will be graded (such as a rubric or other guidelines).
