Mohawk Valley Community College will host graduation fairs at its Rome and Utica campuses to help students, families, and community members prepare for the May commencement.
The fairs will be April 3 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on the Utica campus in the lobby of the Information Technology Building, and April 4 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on the Rome campus in the Atrium of the Plumley Complex.
The fairs will allow students to register for graduation; pick up a cap and gown; order a class T-shirt and ring; buy discounted graduation gifts from the on-site Bookstore; get help in a post-graduate job search from StaffWorks; and learn more about financing options and products, insurance needs, and purchasing or renting a home from Empower Federal Credit Union and Berkshire Bank, Turnbull Insurance, United Healthcare, and Property Sisters.
Vendors will be available for party-planning, including Hummus & Tabbouleh, Savoy Restaurant, Sweet Escape Chocolate Lounge, Friendly’s, Mike’s Pizza, Sodexo, and more. There also will be a $500 incentive available for graduates from Steet Toyota, said MVCC.
