The University Bookstore is here for all of your graduation needs. Check out the links below for undergraduate and graduate information.
Do you have a gown you no longer need?
Consider donating your gown to healthcare professionals. Gowns4Good is a national movement to address the growing need for personal protective equipment (PPE) by medical facilities in the fight against COVID-19. Graduation gowns are more effective than other PPE alternatives given their length, sleeves, and easy zippered access.
