Members of our Sigma Theta Tau chapter should order their cords directly from the STTI website. Personalized announcements, class rings, diploma frames and other memorabilia items are available now for purchase from Jostens. All graduates will receive an FNU pin. The “pinning” will take place at the end of the ceremony. Graduates who are unable to attend the ceremony will receive their pin via postal mail in the days following October 21, 2017.
More details regarding the ceremony, a letter from President Stone, video & pictures from past years, directions to the venue, and much more can be found on these webpages.
We will send each graduate a copy of a press release, announcing your graduation, which you can give to your local newspapers or other media. Expect it to be sent to you in late September.
