RIT hosts Graduation Fair 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 10, in the Fireside Lounge.

The fair, held 100 days prior to graduation weekend, is an opportunity for all 2016 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 131th Commencement Weekend, set for May 20 and 21.

“In one stop, students can get the information they need about Senior Week and Commencement Weekend as well as meet with campus departments that will support them as they conclude their RIT career,” said Kerry Hughes, project and event manager for Academic Affairs.

Also on hand will be representatives from Student Financial Services, Graduate Enrollment Services, Career Services, Alumni Relations and Barnes & Noble. The College Activities Board will be giving out free T-shirts. A variety of vendors will be sharing information on hotels and activities in the Rochester area, purchasing ceremony DVDs, choosing class rings and having a graduation photo taken. Students can enter for a chance to win prizes such as an RIT diploma frame and photo package from GradImages, an official commencement photography company.

Let the countdown begin!
