Seniors will sign up for their caps and gowns during Kenyon's graduation fair.
Each Senior's regalia has already been paid for in the December tuition bill. Caps and gowns will be distributed to Seniors at the Commencement and Senior Sing Rehearsal.
Prior to crossing the stage to receive their diploma, Seniors will be hooded by two of the ceremonial marshals. The academic hoods belong to Kenyon. If graduates or their families wish to keep the hood, it may be purchased for $140; payment may be made with cash, check or credit card. If not purchased, the hood must be returned following the ceremony.
Seniors or a family member must return the academic hood to the Hood Return table at the Commencement Picnic or the Registration Center — and "sign off" on the check in list — by 7 p.m. following the ceremony. If the hood is not returned, graduates will be billed $140 for the cost to replace the hood.
