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 Scott Spoelhof. 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.
Flowers - The campus store will be selling fresh flowers on Commencement Saturday at the Van Noord Arena. There will be mixed bouquets of spring and summer flowers ($20, includes tax) as well as half-dozen ($20) and full-dozen ($30) rose bouquets. Cash and credit card payment (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) will be accepted.
Graduation announcements, frames and other gifts from the campus store
Commencement DVD - The college will be producing a DVD of the entire commencement ceremony ($15). These can be pre-ordered through the campus store.
Calvin College Nursing Pin - Have a child graduating from the BSN program? The nursing department offers a nursing pin designed by and for Calvin alumni nurses.
