Graduation

We're headed to graduation this weekend and wondered what the attire is for the reception at the President's home? Is it coat and tie for the men, or is it more casual? It looks like it's going to be hot!

    usually just nice clothes are enough. coat and tie not necessary.

    How nice! I love the President's mansion. Got to tour it our first Parents' Weekend. Is this reception for all graduating classes, or just the summer, or just by special invitation only?

    The presidents tour is usually done the night before all graduations. Actually I think the afternoon before...between about 3-5pm if I remember correctly.

    But maybe if some graduations are on Friday night, it might be the same day?

    Thanks! No, it's definitely not special invitation, and yes, it's Friday afternoon. I certainly think it's a nice thing to do, and we're looking forward to it!
