Cal Poly Pomona faculty and staff will have an opportunity to purchase discounted commencement attire at an Academic Regalia Fair inside Bronco Bookstore on Wednesday, Jan. 21.
Representatives from Collegiate Cap & Gown will be on campus taking custom orders for commencement apparel unique to degrees and alma maters. The company will provide fabric samples for gowns, hoods, caps and tams and have similar regalia available to try on. Faculty and staff will receive a 10 to 25 percent discount on most items purchased that day. Items will be delivered well in advance of the 2009 commencement ceremonies.
“Faculty members often ask us how they can purchase their own regalia, so we started holding this fair back in 2002,” says Karen Ward, director of Bookstore Services. “A purchase not only saves money over the years of participating in commencement ceremonies, it avoids the time and hassle of renting and returning. Plus, the quality of a custom-made garment will be higher than that of a rental.”
The faculty rental period will be April 6 through April 17.
