Email from Dean Hinkson to all Graduating Seniors!

Dear Graduating Seniors,

Please read this complete email as it provides important information on a number of topics...

Barnard Commencement tickets - Each graduating senior will be eligible to receive 7 tickets. If you do not have need of all 7 tickets, please let me know.

Extra Barnard Commencement tickets - There will be extremely limited availability of extra tickets, towards that end, I will send you a request form the week of April 17th.  This will allow you to request extra tickets and I will aim to get back to you with a decision the following week. Please do not assume you will get extra tickets until you receive a confirmation message from me.

Commencement Rehearsal -  Please block your calendars now for mandatory commencement rehearsal on Monday, May 15th from 11-3. You will receive your Barnard Commencement tickets at rehearsal.

Barnard B&B - for those of you who have relatives who will be coming from out of town to attend commencement, you will find information about campus housing for them at:

Moving out of campus housing - Please note that all graduating seniors will need to move out of campus housing by noon on Thursday the 18th of May.

Barnard Caps & Gowns - Barnard provides caps and gowns to our graduates, so please do not purchase them. They will be yours to keep.

Looking forward to celebrating your graduation with you,

Dean Hinkson
