NC State Bookstores semi-annual graduation fair will take place November 1 – 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (6:00 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 2) each day on the lower level of Wolfpack Outfitters at Talley Student Union. At the event, NC State University graduating seniors and their families can purchase commencement apparel and merchandise. Faculty can also reserve regalia for graduation exercises.
For those attending the three-day event, diploma frames will be 10 percent off the regular price. If students and families cannot attend the fair, online ordering is available for some products.
In the spring of 2010, NC State transitioned to caps and environmentally-friendly gowns dyed red and embroidered with the North Carolina State Seal. Each gown is produced by GreenWeaverTM and made with 100 percent post-consumer recycled bottles.
NC State Bookstores has partnered with the NC State Alumni Association and Balfour to bring students the NC State ring program. This program embodies the storied tradition of graduates of NC State earning the right to their own NC State ring. Our ring representatives will be at the Grad Fair to answer questions and take orders.

- Balfour – class rings and graduation announcements
- University Frames, Inc. – handmade custom diploma frames
