APSU hosting Fall Graduation Gala Oct. 9-10
(Posted Oct. 1, 2018)
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Austin Peay State University Registrar’s Office will host its Sixth Annual Graduation Gala this October. This fall’s gala will be from 2-5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9, and from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, in the Morgan University Center Ballroom.
“Each semester, this event continues to grow as it provides valuable information to Austin Peay students planning to graduate on Dec. 14,” Telaina Wringley, APSU registrar, said.
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. And since the University no longer hosts a commencement practice, the Grad Gala provides students the opportunity to have all their questions answered regarding the ceremony.
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.
