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.
NOTE: This website is for ordering regalia for SCPS graduates only. If you are a traditional student unable to attend the Graduation Fair on March 13, 2019, you may pick up regalia in the College Store directly prior to Commencement on May 18th. If you are unable to pick up in the college store prior to Commencement, please contact Nancy Fink at 717-361-1382 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance. Please be aware that you must make your plans to attend known by April 1, 2019, to avoid paying a $20 late fee
