On Commencement Day you will be wearing academic attire (regalia) that continues the traditions that began hundreds of years ago.  The gowns, hoods, and hats date from medieval times and indicate the wearer is an educated person.  We are proud that this year all of the regalia worn by students at Commencement will be environmentally sensitive.  It is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles!  As a result, fewer plastic bottles will be clogging our landfills because for every Elizabethtown College student walking at Commencement, an average of 23 plastic bottles will have been used to manufacture the cap, hood, and gown.

In the effort to remain “green” on campus, the line of commencement wear - named NuHorizon - is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets. With some 60 million plastic bottles going into U.S. landfills every day, Elizabethtown College – and our graduates – are helping to turn trash into keepsakes.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:   This website is only for SCPS graduates ordering regalia.  If you are a traditional student that was unable to attend the Graduation Fair on March 14th and you are not able to pick up your regalia in the College Store prior to Commencement, please contact Nancy Fink in the College Store at 717-361-1382 or by email at for further assistance.  You must make contact before March 29th to avoid any late fees.
