The Thinker (sculpture)

Thinking about going? Remember, no gown = no graduation participation. Order yours at the Grad Fair!

Get Thee to the Grad Fair

If you are wondering what to do next, concentrate on enjoying this last semester and begin to take care of the small things that go along with graduation.

Go to the Grad Fair, March 11-13 in the Columbia University Bookstore, to place orders for all of the things you need for your big day: announcements, regalia (a.k.a. cap and gown), your class ring, and more.

Also, now it's time to revisit the Senior Checklist of things you need to do leading up to your big day.

News & Announcements

Guest Tickets

As a graduating undergraduate student, you will be able to request up to four (4) tickets for your guests at the time they register to attend. The impressive number of graduates, along with the spatial and security constraints of campus, necessitates a limit of tickets per student.
