Graduate Salute Information and Schedule

Graduate Salute:  A time when seniors come to prepare for Commencement by completing various requirements: ordering regalia, class ring, graduation announcements, meet with various university departments and more.

Date:  February 17 and 18
Location:  2nd floor Belk               
Time:  12 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Tables will be set up for the following:

Office of Career Services: Information tables about the services offered to alumni at the Career Center and learn about the remaining career fairs for the semester. Each senior will receive "The Senior Booklet," which contains information about post graduation job searches and educational services.

Office of Engagement:

  1. Consider leaving a lasting legacy on the pathways of Peace and buy a Senior Brick! To purchase one brick for $50 or two for $80, (one for the campus brick pathway, and one keepsake) simply complete the form online here: https://wpeaceu.wufoo.com/forms/senior-class-brick-order-form/. Senior athletes can also have their bricks laid along the pathway to Hermann Athletic Center for just $25 more!
     
  2. To commemorate YOUR senior year, join your fellow classmates and participate in the Class of 2015 Senior Class Gift Campaign. Seniors who give towards the Senior Class Gift of $20.15 will receive a commemorative Loyalty Fund Pin to wear at commencement and will be recognized in the University’s Commencement Program. Since 1872, Peace students have left their mark on this beautiful campus. This is a special way for you to support YOUR alma mater -- it's a tradition I hope will continue as we welcome our future alumni! You may bring cash or check or pay online at www.peace.edu/alumni/give.

AND A BONUS…The Pink Alli has VERY generously offered to monogram your graduation hood at no charge to any student supporting this campaign.  Each year, Peace alumna Alli Leggett Woolard ’01 donates this generous gift to all graduating students as a personal way of giving back to her alma mater. This gift is given to you as a way to congratulate you on your graduation and to welcome you as the newest Alumni.

Office of the Registrar: Students can confirm correct spelling of their name and major for diplomas with a registrar representative. Students can also choose whether their diploma will say William Peace University or Peace College.

Office of Student Accounts: A representative from Student Accounts will be available for students to pay their Graduation fee -- if they have not already made this payment -- and any other outstanding balances.

Pink Alli: The Pink Alli has VERY generously offered to monogram your graduation hood at no charge to any student supporting the Class of 2014 Senior Class Campaign. Each year, Peace alumna Alli Leggett Woolard ’01 donates this generous gift to all graduating students as a personal way of giving back to her alma mater. This gift is given to you as a way to congratulate you on your graduation and to welcome you as the newest Alumni. Once Jostens delivers the caps/gowns/and hoods, Pink Alli will return to WPU and meet with graduates to measure for their monogramming. Hoods will then be monogrammed and brought back to campus for graduates to pick up.

Jostens: Jostens will measure each student for cap, gown and hoods. Students can also order class rings at this time if they have not already completed these orders. You will also have the opportunity to order graduation announcements and cards. Both Peace College and William Peace University branded products will be available. These are not mandatory, but simply an option many students choose.

*** There will be refreshments available for all attendees
