Students peruse the many vendors at last year’s Graduation Fair. The 2015 Fair is set for Feb. 11 in Fireside Lounge.

RIT hosts Graduation Fair 2015 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, in the SAU Fireside Lounge.

The fair, held 100 days prior to graduation weekend, is an opportunity for all 2015 graduates to do “one-stop” shopping regarding the upcoming commencement, including talking with representatives from their colleges about ceremonies, receptions and other details of RIT’s 130th Commencement Weekend, set for May 22 and 23.

“This is the ninth year we’ve hosted the Graduation Fair, which we designed to help students gather necessary information and plan for their milestone weekend,” said Linda Cunningham, creator of the Graduation Fair and project and event manager for Academic Affairs.

Also on hand will be representatives from Student Financial Services, Offices of Graduate and Part-Time Enrollment Services and Alumni Relations, plus a variety of vendors who can share information on local hotels and “things to see and do” in the Rochester area, purchasing ceremony DVDs, choosing class rings, and having a graduation photo taken. Graduating students attending the fair will be entered into a raffle for a variety of prizes.

Let the countdown begin!
