Grad Ceremonies: Wondering what to wear and how to iron your gown?grad figures6

Graduates, you will be wearing a traditional cap and gown for the ceremony. Please remember that this is a formal occasion, and that your attire will be seen as you cross the stage. The gowns zip up in front, but your neck area and legs will be visible, so please consider the formality of the occasion when you choose your outfit. To press your gown, please use a low to medium heat and put a piece of material such as a cotton pillowcase in between the gown and iron. You may use a spray of water or the piece of material can be slightly damp. The gown is polyester and will burn if an iron is put directly on the gown.

Your shoes will be visible to the audience as you cross the stage, so no slippers, flip flops or dirty shoes. When selecting shoes, please keep in mind that you will be walking up and down a very large staircase during the processional and recessional. It is important for you to be wearing appropriate shoes for this. Flat shoes or VERY low heels are strongly recommended.

– Gentlemen: We suggest dress shirt with a collar and tie, as the top of your shirt can be seen above the gown and this looks nice in photos. Suit jackets aren’t necessary; it gets quite hot on stage under the lights. Black pants look best with the black gown.
-Ladies: We suggest a nice shirt/dress (many female students tend to choose a neckline that is not visible above the gown, so the colour is not important). Black pants or a knee-length skirt/dress look best with the black gown.
