Event of the Week: McMaster DeGroote Graduation Formal

Taking the Next Step: A Formal Dance Ticket for Commerce Graduates

Summer is approaching and that means that graduation season is upon us: the moment when adults make the important jump from a life of academia to the working world. This momentous change is something to celebrate and that is what the students of McMaster University did.

The DeGroote Commerce Society is an organization of the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University. One of the co-chairs of the Commerce Society, Alicia Gatto, explained that the Commerce Society “represents its membership in University, faculty, and community affairs as well provides various value adding academic, social, and degree enhancing experiences for its members.”

The Commerce Society held a Commerce Graduation Formal on March 24 for this semester’s graduates. And after weeks of cramming for exams and endless stress, a night of food, drinks, and dancing was much needed. Gatto said that the night was a huge success and for her the best part was “seeing everyone having a good time that night. The dinner was delicious and the DJ was awesome.” There was also a photographer for the night, which Gatto said was “fun for everyone.”

Gatto said the Commerce Society used Facebook as well as posters all over campus in order to get graduates interested in the night of dinner and dancing. And they used the lobby of the business school, where everyone would see the table selling the tickets, which were ordered from CanadaTicketPrinting.com.

Gatto ordered the Black Tie Gala VIP Pass and said that “everyone loved the ticket design. It was perfect to lie out as extra promotion when people bought tickets.” She loved that the passes matched the theme of the event, but thought the passes were a bit large to fit in people’s wallets without having to fold the pass a few times.

Gatto advises any other student organizations planning events for graduation to “Stay organized! Keep a checklist of everything that needs to get and when it needs to be done by.”

Good advice for students to take with them as they step into their new roles as professional men and women. From everyone at CanadaTicketPrinting.com, Good Luck!
