Alumni association hosts countdown to commencement

November 1, 2000

December graduates can prepare for commencement and life after UW–Madison at “Countdown to Commencement” sponsored next week by the Wisconsin Alumni Association.

This “one stop shop” approach to preparing for graduation will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Tripp Commons, Memorial Union, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

This event will enable December graduates to reserve their commencement attire, order their class ring and announcements, check their graduation status, order a Badger yearbook, and learn about commencement activities for their specific school. Seniors will also be able to confirm their diploma mailing address and obtain valuable information from Kaplan about graduate school tests.

Wisconsin Alumni Association staff will be on hand to explain the benefits of joining the alumni association, including access to short-term insurance, obtaining valuable coupons, utilizing WAA’s All-Alumni Directory, setting up a free e-mail account, and volunteering for WAA’s Career Connections program.

Winter grads may also order video and conventional yearbooks, receive information about lifetime Union memberships, and ask last-minute questions about their eligibility to graduate.
