Commencement and Grad Gown Information
The size of a graduation gown is determined by the wearer's height. The gown is designed to reach down to the wearer's mid-calf. 
Full Fit sizing provides more room (are wider) for the wearer than a regular size gown.

Height should be measured with flat shoes or barefoot - no heels.

Grad Anecdote

As this is a formal event, it is important that your anecdote is appropriate for the occasion. This is not the time/place for “inside jokes,” shout-outs to your significant other, etc. Your anecdote should be no more than 20 words maximum.
