Tennessee Promise


The GRAD Fair provides opportunities to:

  • Meet college recruiters
  • Pick up caps and gowns
  • Pick up pronouncer cards*
  • Join Southwest's Alumni Association

*Pronouncer cards are used to announce your name as you walk across the stage on commencement day. The graduate is required to bring the pronouncer card to commencement. This is the only way the pronouncer will know your name.

Note: Regalia and cap/gown are used interchangeably.
