Lake Superior State University Bookstore Commencement Information


Grad Fair 2020 has been cancelled.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18th, you may stop in to the Bookstore or contact the Bookstore by phone (906-635-2645) to purchase your Cap and Gown.

LSSU is “Greening” for Commencement!

GreenWeaver material is used for all baccalaureate regalia. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic pellets, an average of 23 plastic bottles is used to make one cap and gown. The fabric is softer than the traditional polyester, and can be recycled, too!

Special note: Graduation gown styles have recently changed. If you have any questions regarding graduation items, please call the bookstore at 906-635-2645.
