More details

Traditionally, seniors have put together a slide show to be shown at the convocation ceremony. The production is up to the class and is shown on a repeat cycle while guests come in to be seated. A copy must be given to the nursing department one week before convocation. The class votes on a student speaker and a faculty speaker.  This is usually done during the spring term.  

What to wear

Graduation robes should be worn for the OHSU convocation, with both caps and robes to be worn for the OIT commencement. Nursing pins are options. Purchasing information will be provided to students in late winter term or early spring term before graduation.
