Commencement Goes Green

In an effort to continue Southwestern’s dedication to environmental consciousness and sustainability, Southwestern is committed to making our biggest event of the year environmentally friendly.

Here are a few of the changes made to lessen our impact on the environment:

  • Graduates' robes are made from recycled material and are bio-degradable.
  • Commencement programs are printed on recycled paper.
  • Biodegradable disposable products are used at our water stations.
  • Commencement menus feature organic and locally grown produce and other food products.
