Greetings Class of 2007 Ė Information on Commencement
Greetings from the Office of Alumni Relations! While many
of you may associate our office with just alumni affairs,
you may be interested to know that we interact with students
all the time, most prominently as we celebrate your graduation
by planning all of the details regarding Commencement.
This year's Commencement Ceremony will be held on SUNDAY,
MAY 20, at the Arie Crown Theater, McCormick Place.
The day includes a formal indoor ceremony at the Theater,
followed by a lovely reception at the venue.
THE FOLLOWING TWO FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED BY FRIDAY,
1) Cap and Gown Form
By now, you should have received information mailed to
you from Traditions USA regarding how to place your cap
and gown order. Traditions USA is the company that the law
school has contracted for your Commencement caps and gowns.
There is NO CHARGE for the cap and gown, however you
must respond by Saturday, April 21 with your measurements,
in order to avoid being assessed a late fee.
The link to place your cap and gown order is: https://www.traditionsusa.com/forms/ChicagoKentCollegeOfLawcapgown2.asp
Cap and Gown orders MUST be placed directly with Traditions
USA. Caps and gowns will be distributed the day of
graduation at the Arie Crown Theater.
2) Commencement Student Information Form
As we attempt to minimize your inconvenience with multiple
forms toward the end of the school year, we have developed
a single online form that we believe will streamline this
task, assisting you with all final details as you approach
graduation. Please complete this MANDATORY form, as its
completion is also necessary in order for us to distribute
your commencement tickets. Visit: http://www.kentlaw.edu/depts/alums/commencement/info.html,
and submit no later than FRIDAY, April 20, in order
to ensure the release of your tickets during ticket distribution
the week of April 23 (details to follow as we approach).
NOTE: This form is SEPARATE from the Application for Graduation
required by the Registrarís Office, and is necessary if
you plan to participate in the Commencement exercises.
Ticket Distribution will take place the week of April
23, with day and evening hours to accommodate your schedules.
Each student will be given seven (7) tickets, and may purchase
additional tickets at $15/each during ticket distribution
Information regarding accommodations, alumni hooding, and
other related items can be found on our Web site here.
Please review in order to best answer the questions you
or your family may have.
While you will hear more from us in the coming weeks, look
regularly in this section of the Record for important information
you will need to know, as well as upcoming updates on the
law school's Web site.
