Tips to make your virtual commencement experience memorable:
- Schedule a virtual commencement watch party with family and friends or share the virtual commencement website link with family and friends, asking them to join you for the event. Just be sure to follow current mask/distancing guidelines from health officials to keep your family and friends safe.
- Participate in time-honored commencement traditions such as standing upon degree conferral, tassel and/or ring turning, cap throwing, and the Eagle Talon hand sign during the Alma Mater.
- Think of your front door entry, living room fireplace, apartment balcony or backyard patio as your own personal auditorium and walk across “the stage” and wave to your fans, smile and shout with joy as your name is called.
- If you’re a doctoral graduate, have a loved one place your hood. Take photos and videos of this special moment and share them with us: #UNTgrad!
- Purchase regalia (optional) to wear during your virtual commencement celebration and for photo opportunities.
- If you’re an undergraduate, make sure to wear your mortar board tassel on the right side; when your degree is conferred by President Smatresk, move your tassel to the left.
- Share your cap-and-gown selfie and other commencement experiences on social media. Tag us with #UNTgrad!
- Download a PDF of the commencement program to provide commemorative memorabilia to your family, or to all of the guests who attend your celebration.
