Information to help the Class of 2023 prepare for graduation. Be sure to review the Graduating Senior Checklist.
Beautiful Bouquets & Leis
A beautiful Oxy tradition is to wear an orchid lei on graduation day! Also available will be bouquets & kukui nuts. Pre-order from our campus approved vendor The Commencement Group to pick up the day of graduation at booths around campus. Give kukui nuts and orchid leis to grads & friends or a bouquet to someone who helped you through your years at Oxy.
Announcements are a wonderful way to let family & friends know about your accomplishment! Graduation announcements may be ordered at the Class of 2023 Grad Fair on Feb 16th 11:30a-1:30p or on the Balfour/CB Grad website.
