New regalia for December ceremonies

New this December, graduates receiving a bachelor's degree will be wearing brown regalia instead of black. Students who have already purchased black regalia may exchange it for the same size in the WMU Bookstore, providing the regalia is from Oak Hall. No receipt will be required. Exchanges will be allowed through December 2021.
