Who will be there?


Career Education Center

The Career Education 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.


Be a part of the University of Portland tradition by wearing the Stole of Gratitude and presenting it to those who have made a significant difference in your life.

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.
