Graduation is an exciting event for NSU students. Many students would like to participate in celebrating this milestone, but are unable to for a variety of reasons. Dr. Jennifer Shaw, Louisiana Title IV-E Program, with support from the Department of Social Work, created the “Gowns for Grads” program to provide students with a free rental of graduation caps, gowns, and additional items (tassels, cords, stoles, etc.).
This program is donation-based and continues to grow and be successful through numerous donations from NSU students, alumni, and the community. We are very thankful to have this program through NSU, however, we do have limited resources for our graduate students. Because we have limited items, we operate on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We appreciate all donations from NSU alum and monetary donations. With your help, we can guarantee all of our students have the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments on graduation day!
