The fairs will serve as one-stop shopping for class rings and commencement needs.
The Texas Tech Alumni Association, in conjunction with the University Bookstore, Texas Tech University Career Services, and the Texas Tech University Graduate School, will host the Spring 2012 Graduation Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 6-8 at the Frazier Alumni Pavilion.
Texas Tech students can take advantage of one-stop shopping for class rings and commencement needs at the Graduation Fair. Campus representatives will be available to assist in ordering class rings, caps, gowns and hoods, as well as announcements, invitations and diploma frames.
Although the Graduation Fair is primarily designed to accommodate seniors who are nearing the completion of their degrees, students who have completed a minimum of 75 credit hours are eligible to purchase the Official Texas Tech Class Ring. Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance will present each ring at the Official Ring Ceremonies on April 30 and May 1 at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Official Texas Tech Class Ring funds the Texas Tech University First Generation Scholarship program.
Texas Tech University Career Services will be available to answer questions about career development and the job search, the Texas Tech University Graduate School will provide information for those considering advanced degrees and Kaplan Test Prep Services will offer tips on test-prep courses.
Representatives from the Texas Tech Federal Credit Union and Liberty Mutual will assist students with planning for the transition to post-college life.
Members of the Student Alumni Association and Student Alumni Board will provide information about joining the Texas Tech Alumni Association. Attendees can register to win an iPad and other gift certificates.
