    Graduation Appreciation Program

    As you approach commencement, you will probably reflect on what these years meant to you, what you learned along the way, and who was there to support you through it all.

    The Graduation Appreciation Program (GAP) allows you to honor those people who have played a significant role in your time here at Hamline. 

    Perhaps it was your parents, your partner or spouse, a professor, or a mentor? Whomever you would like to acknowledge, you can do so on graduation day. The individuals that you choose to thank will be listed in the Commencement program under your name.

    There are no fees involved in taking part of this program. We simply want to help you say "thanks." 

    Submit an Entry

    Your entries must fit in the space allowed. Each graduate is given four lines at 29 characters per line. You may phrase your message however you choose, but remember that inappropriate text will be removed.  

    The deadline for GAP submissions is Thursday, April 6, 2017. Late submissions will not be accepted.

    Contact Alumni Relations for questions at alum@hamline.edu.
