SHIPPENSBURG- With graduation only two days away social media is filled with graduation pictures of seniors getting ready to say goodbye to Shippensburg University. When looking at pictures some students may have many cords,stoles or medallions. Members of academic honor societies may wear the appropriate attire. Cords, stoles and medallions are provided by their society. Requests for any new cords, medallions, or stoles must be approved by the commencement committee and be made two months prior to commencement.
The bookstore is responsible for selling the honor cords associated with GPA. SUTV members try to obtain cords for graduation but, were turned down. Fraternities, Sororities and even the marching band can obtain stoles. SUTV members did get cords but they are not officially recognized by the University since SUTV is considered a club.
