Legacy Cords

The UND Alumni Association & Foundation gifts legacy students with a specific cord to wear at graduation to recognize the connection they share with their family members who have graduated before them. Students with UND graduates in their family history (parents, step-parents, or grandparents) are considered legacies. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible.

Legacy Cords are offered for every commencement at:

  • The Grad Expos
  • UND Alumni Association & Foundation Commencement Breakfast & Socials
  • In the “ready room” on the day of commencement
  • During normal business hours, Monday through Friday, at the Gorecki Alumni Center

The UND Alumni Association & Foundation began offering Legacy Cords during Spring Commencement, May 2012.
