Graduation season is upon us and the College Of Western Idaho is getting set for their second Gradfest. Gradfest 2021 will take place May 13th!

As the pandemic crossed the year mark, the College Of Western Idaho announced they would be holding another Gradfest this year in lieu of a traditional graduation ceremony. Like they did last year, they'll invite graduating students to drive up in their car (preferably decorated) and celebrate without even getting out!

Per the College of Western Idaho's Website: "Congratulations, 2021 graduates! You made it! Gather your family and friends, decorate your car, and plan to join us for this year’s Grad Fest, Thursday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Nampa Campus Academic Building (NCAB)! This drive-by celebration will be complete with music, balloons, confetti, and an exclusive Grad Fest gift bag full of CWI swag and alumni keepsakes – all to celebrate YOU!"

Now, if you or someone you know is graduating from CWI this Spring, you should know that registration is required if you'd like to attend the Gradfest drive through graduation ceremony on May 13th. I was there last year and I can attest that it is a really fun event, and a fun way to celebrate the success of students completing their programs at CWI. There's honking, confetti, cheering, the works. Although it isn't a traditional, sit in the stands while the band plays pomp and circumstance type of graduation, it's certainly one to remember, especially in these crazy times.
