Upcoming ASU graduates attended the Fall Graduation Fair on Oct. 25 in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center where they received information about the commencement ceremony.

Students who attended the fair verified their inclusion on the unofficial graduation list, ordered caps and gowns and discussed graduate programs over light refreshments. Attendees also learned how to join the ASU Alumni Association and perused examples of invitations and diploma frames.

Logan Orozco, senior, offered advice to students still working their way to a degree.

"Find something you really enjoy and pursue it," she said. "No matter how hard it gets, you can get through it if you believe in yourself."

Orozco, a biology major from Ballinger, Texas, has a job lined up as a dental assistant. She also plans to apply for a post-baccalaureate degree.

Graduate student Joseline Hernandez stressed the importance of not closing doors to potential career prospects.

"Explore different jobs within your career field and be open to new opportunities," she said.

Hernandez currently has a job with the Department of Family Protective Services. She will graduate with her master’s degree in border and homeland security.

Graduate student Linh Nguyen offered words of encouragement, as well.

"Be prepared for anything that could happen," Nguyen said.

Nguyen, originally from Vietnam, said she will move to Houston with plans to become a career development counselor.

The fall commencement takes place on Dec. 15 in the Junell Center/Stephens Arena. It will be divided into two ceremonies.

The 10 a.m. ceremony will be the commencement of graduates from the following departments: College of Graduate Studies and Research, Archer College of Health and Human Services, College of Education.

The 2 p.m. ceremony will be the commencement of graduates from the following departments: College of Graduate Studies and Research, College of Arts and Humanities, College of Science and Engineering, and the Norris-Vincent College of Business.
