Ben—

The idea would be for STC to choose a vendor like Herff-Jones and select a cord design for student chapter members and another for advisors.  Then, the chapters would order the cords directly from the vendor as needed.  At least, that’s what I’m thinking.

Any idea if these can be produced on demand? I can't see an inventory being kept.

Hey Cindy--

I have already mentioned it to Stacey O'Donnell in the office, and she was going to check with Chris Lyons.  I just wanted to check with the experts in our SIG to see if there were any agendas of which we should be aware.

Best!

All,

If you don’t mind, I’ll forward this email thread to someone in the office for some guidance. Hopefully we can get this program moving forward!

I thought the chapters could order them from a vendor STC chose so the vendor would have whatever color combination we designated.  As to limitations…I wondered If there were limits on the types of clubs, etc. that can provide cords, but I have seen all types of clubs do it.

The where they order them from would probably start with the bookstore or wherever students order caps, gowns, etc.  And if they didn’t order cords specifically, I bet they would know where to start.

I’m not following the limitation part of your question….but it’s been that kind of a week.

Hugs,
Lisa

Subject: [Academic-discuss] Question about graduation cords

Hi all—

The student members of Mercer’s STC chapter asked me if STC awards cords for graduation.  STC does not at this time.  I was very interested in this idea because many clubs, honor societies, etc. give their students cords to celebrate graduation, and I would love to make this available for our student members.  If STC were to make cords available for order by chapters, do you know if we have limitations?  Where they might order them?  I would appreciate any information.

Best!
Pam
