Students can start picking up their graduation caps and gowns next Tuesday for the Commencement Ceremony on June 16.

Students must pick up their orders from the Clark bookstore by June 3 and must bring photo ID. Don’t fret if you missed the order deadline; from June 6-10 you can select from a limited number of discarded orders that were the wrong size or had other mistakes.

Tuesday is also the deadline for ordering name cards for the ceremony, which aid the pronunciation of graduates’ names.

About 700 orders were received this year, which is less than last year, according to bookstore staff member Kourtney Gerald. The bookstore will also be selling memorabilia, gifts, flowers and Hawaiian leis at a booth at the ceremony, according to their website.
