  • Confirm you have been approved to graduate with Rush University departments.
  • Have a formal graduation portrait taken in regalia with the help of our vendors LifeTouch and Herff Jones!
  • Participate in a “thank you” montage that will be played at the Commencement ceremony.
  • Meet with vendors to order personalized announcements, class rings, diploma frames and more.
  • Door prizes, giveaway items, and much more!
