There will be an academic procession for Opening Convocation on the first day of classes at which faculty wear caps and gowns. If you would like to purchase or rent a cap and gown, please contact Nick Bauernfeind or Patricia O’Donnell in the Carleton Bookstore by August 1. There are also a small number of caps and gowns in various sizes available to borrow through Conferences and Event Services on a first-come-first-served basis. Please contact Noel Ponder at 507-222-5461 if you are interested.
