University of Arkansas at Little Rock students who are graduating this spring can find all of their commencement day needs at Gradfest from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 6-7. 

The event will be held in the Lower Level Concourse in Donaghey Student Center between the UA Little Rock Bookstore and Health Services Center. The deadline to apply for graduation is Friday, March 2.

Caps and gowns will be available for purchase throughout Gradfest, along with official UA Little Rock class rings and graduation announcements.

Representatives from several university departments, including financial aid, records and registration, and graduate school will be present to speak with students about graduation applications, post-graduate opportunities, and commencement information.

The Alumni Association will speak with students about the benefits of becoming a member, as well as the memorabilia they offer, including personalized bricks and college license plates.

Students who attend the event will have the opportunity to complete a survey to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $300 UA Little Rock Graduate Packet. Included will be a cap and gown, a personalized brick, an alumni t-shirt, an alumni license plate frame, and an official UA Little Rock diploma frame.
