Graduating Students

Graduation Announcements

Graduation announcements are an ideal way to commemorate this special occasion. Announcements are personalized with the graduate’s name and degree to be awarded and include an embossed pearlized college seal on the outside cover. Each announcement also includes mailing envelope, inside envelope, and card announcing the Baccalaureate service. If you are interested in purchasing graduation announcements, you may order them at this website.
