Graduation Fair To Be Held At Concord University

ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University will be holding its Spring Graduation Fair on Feb. 11, 2014 in the Concord University Ballroom from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. The ballroom is located in the Jerry and Jean Beasley Student Center on Concord’s Athens campus at 1000 Vermillion St., Athens, W.Va. This graduation fair is for Concord students applying for graduation in May 2014 or August 2014.

Concord’s administrative offices will have representatives in attendance. The Financial Aid Office will be there to help explain and aid students through the exit process that must be completed before graduation. The Business Office will be there to collect the $50 fee, and the Career Services Office will be available to help students with resumes and to discuss graduate and professional school options. The Concord Bookstore employees will also be available to fit students for their caps and gowns.

“Basically, we consider this to be a one-stop shop for all the graduates on campus,” says Carolyn Cox, registrar for Concord University. Refreshments will also be available for those in attendance along with a chance to get photographs taken for the yearbook.
