How Do I Return My Apparel After Commencement?


Undergraduates may retain or recycle their “Renew” cap, gown and tassel. These keepsake gowns are produced from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.

Return academic apparel and hoods at the stations set up at the exit immediately following the ceremony at Fiserv Forum.

Caps and tassels may be retained as a keepsake.

If you would like to wear your apparel for the remainder of the afternoon for family photos, etc., you may choose to do so. We ask that you please return your apparel to the Alumni Memorial Union (AMU), Room 252, by Sunday evening or no later than Monday, May 13 (check for current AMU building hours).
