Formal printed announcements for Centre Commencement are available through Herff Jones. Seniors will receive an order packet from Herff Jones in campus mail. The forms are mailed directly back to Herff Jones and they ship the announcements directly to the student (or parent if preferred). Herff Jones representatives will be on campus and available for students to meet with on March 8 and 9 in the Campus Center, Ewen Room. If you have questions, feel free to contact Linda Minteer at (859) 238-1516 at The Centre Bookstore. You may also order the announcements online at collegegrad.herffjones.com.
Caps and Gowns
Herff Jones representatives will be on campus and available for students to meet with on March 8 and 9 in the Campus Center, Ewen Room. Orders for caps and gowns will be taken then. If for any reason your student misses that meeting, the Centre Bookstore will take their order and measurements. The cap and gown are “keepsakes,” so they will not need to turn them in after the ceremony. All outstanding fees must be paid before a student picks up their cap and gown.
EARLY GRADUATES OR STUDENTS WHO ARE ABROAD can email the following information to the firstname.lastname@example.org – height and weight. They should do this as soon as possible.

Centre class rings are also available through Herff Jones. Herff Jones representatives will be on campus and available for students to meet with on March 8 and 9 in the Campus Center, Ewen Room. If you have questions, contact Herff Jones at collegegrad.herffjones.com.
