Eco-Gowns Staple of Commencement Regalia

For the third consecutive year, the College’s graduates will once again be donning regalia made from 100% recycled material. The “eco-gowns” are made with Renew Fabric, which comes from post consumer plastic bottles.

In addition, unwanted gowns won’t go to waste. The College will collect gowns following the ceremony for those students who do not wish to keep them. The gowns will be cleaned and utilized at other college events, such as induction ceremonies for Phi Theta Kappa and GED graduations.
