The Career Center will be on hand to administer the post-graduation survey you will take upon entering the event. This information will be used for future programming and services to support UP alumni. For students still seeking post-graduation plans, information on alumni career resources and guides will be available.

You may also purchase other items to highlight your accomplishment and your UP pride with jewelry designs ranging from the fresh and modern, to the timeless and traditional. Jostens Collegiate Jewelry is made in America, and offers a wide array of styles and customizations to tell your story and complement your style. Let your college ring, bracelet, locket or tag serve as a symbol of your achievement and a reminder of all the memories you made on your UP journey.
