Grad Fair 2018 is April 25 & 26 in the UCSB Campus Store Lobby

The UCSB Campus Store is gearing up for the 2018 Graduation and our hard-working graduates always have lots of questions about regalia. Please remind your graduating student employees to stop by the Campus Store for all their graduation questions and regalia information. Below are important dates for them to remember when ordering regalia for the ceremony.
