With December Convocation (Dec. 11) quickly approaching, West Virginia Universitys One-Stop Shop has everything graduating seniors need for their special day.

Theshopwill run Monday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Mineral Resources Building Atrium on the Evansdale Campus; and Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 25-26, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Mountainlair commons area.

The event is ahassle-free wayto take care of graduation details, said Amanda Tranquillo, future services specialist for WVU Student Affairs. Everything from caps and gowns to graduation announcements and official class rings will be available for purchase at two convenient locations.

In addition, students will be able to pay their $30 graduation fee (by check or credit card), get tips on how to write an effective resume or start their job hunt, and sign up with the Alumni Association and the Athletic Department to stay connected with WVU after graduation.

This is an ideal time to talk to representatives from Student Accounts and Admissions and Records as students prepare for the future, Tranquillo saidalso to review loan repayment information with Financial Aid staff or pick up graduation application information for individual colleges.

If students would like to contribute to the Senior Gift, they are encouraged to make a $30 donation to ensure their names get listed on the Class of 2006 Mountaineer Mark plaque that will be displayed on the Walk of Seniors in Mountaineer Heritage Park.

All seniors who take part in the One-Stop Shop will have the opportunity to enter their names in a drawing for a diploma frame ($130 value) from the WVU Bookstore.

This event is part of WVU s Senior Year Experience. For more information, call Student Affairs at 304-293-5811 or go tohttp://studentaffairs.wvu.edu/senioryear.html.
