Bookstore Grad Fairs Make the Process Easy and Fun
April 22, 2016
Graduating from college has always been an exciting time for seniors, but it can also overwhelm and stress even the most organized student. As college life winds to an end, the class of 2016 finds itself preparing for this major milestone, while also studying for exams and thinking about that first real job.
The campus bookstore is in a unique position to provide valuable information to graduating students, simplify the graduation process, and help students celebrate their outstanding achievements. This spring, Barnes & Noble College campus bookstores across the country held Grad Fairs, where students could pick up their graduation regalia; register to participate in graduation; have their graduation portrait taken; purchase graduation gifts; speak with class ring, diploma frame and announcement representatives; speak with the alumni association; and enjoy refreshments and have fun.
