The University of Toledo Bookstore will hold a Graduation Fair Tuesday and Wednesday, March 3 and 4, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Representatives from graduation product companies will be at the event so students can actually talk to a person before they make a purchase,” said Colleen Strayer, general manager of the bookstore.

Companies with representatives attending the event will include Oak Hall, Balfour, Framing Success, Church Hill and Herff Jones. Their products range from caps and gowns, class rings and announcements to diploma frames and nursing pins.

The event will feature a DJ from WXUT and a photo booth with props such as 2015 glasses, boa, mustaches, jester hats and beads.

“Career Services also will be at the event to offer advice and direction for students who are seeking help in that area,” Strayer said.

Every student that tries on a cap and gown will be entered into a drawing to win a free diploma frame, cap and gown, alumni gift pack, or 10 percent off coupon good toward a purchase of UT clothing and gift items.

The bookstore also is offering 10 percent off diploma frames during the two-day event.

“We host this event twice a year, once in October and once in March, for students who like to get an early start,” Strayer said.
