Countdown to Commencement

Dear Seniors,

Welcome to the Countdown to Commencement! As you move into your final weeks as an Allegheny student, please take note of the following important pieces of information.

Senior Week

Senior Week is May 10-12, and tickets are $30. You must pay upon completion of this form. If you do not pay, your registration is not complete or confirmed. The deadline to register is by 5 p.m. on Monday, May 2. For more information, contact the Office of Student Involvement at or the Class of 2016 at

Career Education

If your plans are still coming together, it’s not too late to meet with Kristin Mook, Terri Carr, Christina Moreschi or Jim Fitch to begin creating an outline for life after graduation. To set up an appointment, call (814) 332-2381 or stop by Career Education in the Allegheny Gateway.

Commencement Information

Don’t forget to check the official Commencement website, which has the most up-to-date information for the Commencement weekend. For questions about Commencement, contact the Office of Conference and Event Services at (814) 332-3101.

Caps and Gowns

Caps and gowns are available for purchase in the Bookstore. The cost of the set is $35, or caps, gowns and tassels may be purchased separately.

First Destination Survey

Please complete the First Destination Survey, a short questionnaire about your next steps after graduation. This information helps the College better understand its graduates and helps to improve its programs. Results from this survey also are reported outside the College, impacting Allegheny’s national reputation. Participation is voluntary, but each student who completes the survey by May 11 will be entered into a drawing to win one of four $50 VISA gift cards, courtesy of Career Education. Take the survey here. Your Allegheny student I.D. is your password. Questions? Contact Marian Sherwood, director of Institutional Research, at or (814) 332-2983.

Stay Connected

If you will be living in one of the following areas, consider joining that region’s Facebook group! It’s a great way to connect with fellow Gators and learn the latest news from Allegheny.

See you at Commencement, and congratulations!
