In preparation for that anticipated event, please take a few moments to review the pages on this website for important information on academic apparel, the time and place of the processional, and general information about ceremony protocol.
Upon graduation, you will carry the name and reputation of this University with you. The name of Saginaw Valley State University will be one of the first things to appear on any job application you submit and "where did you go to college" will likely be one of the first questions you are asked in social conversations.
We pledge that we will work to make you as proud of our University as we are of you.
