Once the online shop closes, the apparel will be printed, and either mailed directly to you, or ready for pick-up on campus from May 9-11.  Make sure to only select “Pick-up at reception” if you are already RSVPed to attend the STAT Commencement Reception on May 11th.  If you are not RSVPed, kindly plan to pick-up your order May 9-10 in Brooks Hall, Room 401.
