Tips to get ready for graduation
Start thinking about what kind of dress you want for the dance
. Take in consideration the dress code. Most schools have a dress code for the dance.What color do you want it be ? How long do you want it to be? Do you want straps on it or not?
Start thinking about a date
. Do you want to go with Your boyfriend? Or your best friends?
Buy your shoes and undergarments to go with your dress
. Also buy jewelry, purses, and anything else you might want. If you graduation is on a field, don't wear heels.Your shoes will get stuck in the grass.
Make sure your documents are in order
. Theres nothing worse than arriving on campus only to learn important documents are either incomplete or missing. Make sure all of your student and financial aid forms are complete and on file at your school, before the semester starts. In addition, make an appointment with your academic adviser, sign and return all scholarship or loan agreement forms, and where possible, set up your student account with the bursars office and make an early tuition payment. Failure to do these, and on time, could cause some major difficulties when you arrive on campus.
Learn about your classmates
. Now is a good time to find out about your new classmates, and establishing relationships with other students before you arrive on campus will help you feel more at home when you get there. You can access information about the admitted class on the school's website. Ask the admissions office to put you in touch with other admits. Try to organize or help facilitate a get-together with other students in your area.
Research the curriculum and professors
. As an incoming student, you will likely have access to information on course syllabi and text books. Familiarize yourself with these. Purchase some of the text books in advance, and read the introduction and table of contents. Most schools provide student-generated evaluations of professors and courses online, which typically go back two years, so be sure to check them out. This information will help you make more informed decisions about which electives to take If you have trouble finding it, contact the admissions office.
Explore ways to get involved
. Begin thinking about ways to get involved outside the classroomCheck out information on student government or sports and other campus activities. During my time as a grad school dean, I saw incoming students create their own unique student groups like cigar, wine tasting, and opera lovers clubs so consider starting one if there are no student groups in which you are interested. It offers a great way to develop personal friendships and advance your professional network.
Start thinking about life after graduation
. Yes, you are just beginning. However, its never too early to consider life after grad school, time will literally fly by. And before you know it, you will be graduating. Thats why its so important to take time now to check out your schools
Get hair makeup and nails done
. Preferably not at the same time, no nail polish in hair! That would be bad.
If your spending the night with a friend pack these essentials
. A garment bag for your dress Change of clothes Please Ibuprofen if your feet hurt
Do You Have Enough Credits
. While this may seem like a silly question, I know several people who thought they had enough credits to graduate only to find out in the middle of their last semester they were one or two credits shy. Make sure you talk to your advisor, check out your schools website or visit the Registrars office so you are not left watching from the back on Commencement day.
Complete the Required Paperwork
. One of the most commonly overlooked pieces when it comes to graduation is making sure you have all of your paperwork turned in. Most colleges require you to submit a graduation application or an Intent to graduate form before your last semester. This usually includes the name you would like on your diploma along with the address you would like it sent to. You should also check on whether or not you are required to attend an exit interview with the Admissions office.
. One thing I learned in college is that schools do not mess around when it comes to money issues. Whether it is for tuition, room and board or a simple parking ticket, the school will be sure they get their money. Make certain all of your outstanding fees are paid along with any new ones associated with graduation. (Schools often require a small fee for diplomas)
Order Your Cap and Gown
. This varies from school to school. Some schools pay for each graduating seniors cap and gown while others do not. Check with the bookstore as this is usually where they are ordered from.
Who is coming to Commencement
. Commencement ceremonies differ from university to university depending on size and tradition. Larger schools tend to offer a general commencement ceremony for all students along with individual ceremonies for each program while smaller colleges may only have one ceremony. Seats are likely limited and you will be given a certain number of tickets. Determine who will be attending your graduation and how many tickets you will need. Need more than you are allotted? Ask around. Most people don
. Yes, this is one of the most tedious tasks there are but if you want people to attend your graduation then you are going to have to invite them. Be sure to include their tickets in the invitation. If it will require travel, provide them with information on hotels in the area.
Do not Forget About Your Friends
. The last few weeks of school are extremely hectic. Finals are wrapping up, people are packing to go home and you are trying to enjoy the last few weeks of college life. Before all of this craziness begins, start gathering the contact information of those around you. Telephone numbers, email addresses, or whatever you need to stay in touch with them.
Keep the faith
. Do not fear life. Do not allow lifes numerous and inevitable obstacles to impede your progress. Do not let someone else define possible or impossible for you. Heres the truth the plausibility of impossibility only becomes a probability with the disappearance of faith. The world can take many things from you, but your faith is not one of them. Only you can surrender your faith. Never lose hope.
Life Is All About The People
. Relationships are the biggest asset you have. Your world will be greatly impacted by those whom you choose to include and exclude from your life. Be kind to others, but most importantly, be intentional in building into others. While some short-term success can built at the expense of others, or on the backs of others, any sustainable achievements are built on the success they have created for others. Think selfless as opposed to selfish. Family and friends are worth more than job titles. Life is about people not things. The funny thing is, if you do right by people things will never be an issue.
Stand Out From The Crowd
. The world despises a cheap imitation and loves an original. Conformity to the norm will merely sentence you to mediocrity, obsolescence, and irrelevance. Everyone has unique gifts and talents, and the earlier you discover and develop yours the better off you will be. Build your personal brand, become a subject matter expert, and guard your reputation. Everyone has a personal brand the question is will it be built by default or by design. Everything you do should enhance and reinforce your story.
Learning Does not Stop When You Graduate
. Learning is a life long endeavor. The minute you stop learning is the minute you cede opportunities to others. Always look to challenge and refine your thinking. View everything through the lens of learning. Life is about learning and unlearning, and developing and growing. Don not waste your experiences view them as learning opportunities.
Live Below Your Means
. Debt is not your friend its a plague, and I did suggest you avoid it as such. If you want to become indentured to creditors then by all means, live the high life. Purchasing something you can not afford will not seem like such a great idea as you watch it get repossessed. Liquidity and cash flow give you options, which will afford you the ability to work through tough times. You place everything at risk when you become over-leveraged
. Dont do or say anything controversial at the graduation. That is how people will remember you forever, so play nice! Do not wear your rival schools colors to homecoming, especially if you played and lost to them at your homecoming game, this will end badly for you. Ouch! Also do not wear a dress that reveals too much cleavage. It may be great for attracting attention from guys, but it may lead to a change in clothes.
