APSU hosting Spring Graduation Gala Feb. 26-27

2017 Winter commencement

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Austin Peay State University Registrar’s Office will host its Fifth Annual Graduation Gala this month. This spring’s gala will be from 2-5:30 p.m. on Feb. 26, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb 27, in the Morgan University Center Ballroom.

“In the fall, we had over half of our students attend Grad Gala that applied for December 2017 graduation,” Telaina Wringley, APSU registrar, said. “This event continues to grow and provides valuable information for our students that are planning to graduate on May 4, 2018.”

The event serves as a one-stop shop for graduating seniors, allowing them to celebrate their accomplishments while also making sure there are no hiccups to prevent them from receiving a diploma.

The gala also gives students their first chance to pick up a cap and gown. Participants can also receive resume advice from the APSU Office of Career Service, have the application fee waived if they are applying to graduate school, and take exit interviews for the Financial Aid Office. Students will be able to purchase APSU memorabilia, and the APSU Alumni Office also will be there to provide students with their first official shirts as alumni.

A “Kid Zone” will be set up for students with children, and all eligible participants will be entered into a drawing for a free iPad mini.
