ATHENS, W.Va. - Concord University will be hosting a spring Graduation Fair on Feb. 25, 2013 in the Concord University Ballroom from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. The ballroom is located in the Jerry and Jean Beasley Student Center on Concord’s Athens campus, 1000 Vermillion St. Athens, W.Va. This graduation fair is for Concord students who are applying for May 2013 or August 2013 graduation.

Representatives from many of Concord’s administrative offices will be in attendance. The financial aid office will be available to help explain and aid students through the exit process they must complete before graduation. Representatives from the business office will be there to collect graduation fees and career services will be available to help students with resumes and to discuss graduate and professional school options. The Concord bookstore will be available to fit students for their cap and gown. A photographer will be taking photos of the graduates for the yearbook.

“We consider it a one-stop shop for graduation,” says Carolyn Cox, registrar for Concord University.

Those who attend the event will receive a Concord Alumni license plate, provided by Concord’s alumni office. The Office of Housing and Residence Life will provide light refreshments during the event.
