Photos and gifts for graduates and parents
The Campus Store and a number of partnering businesses offer special memorabilia for Calvin graduates and their parents.
Photos - A professional photographer will take a photograph of each graduate as he or she shakes hands with provost Claudia Beversluis or Board of Trustees chair Bastian Knoppers. Grads and families may order prints from GradPix.com
Caps and gowns - The campus events office provides these for all graduates with no charge (unless grads fail to return them). Grads are measured for their cap and gown during Senior Salute. The gowns must be returned to Hoogenboom 204 by 5 p.m. on Commencement Saturday; caps and tassels may be kept.
Celebrate your graduate with a bouquet from Crescent Street Floral and the Calvin campus store.
