Due to COVID-19, OTC was forced to postpone its May 14th graduation ceremony to August 19th at JQH Arena on the Missouri State campus. However, the college still wanted to give students their caps and gowns to allow them to take graduation photos in their regalia. With that in mind, OTC has scheduled a drive-thru cap and gown pickup for OTC students eligible to graduate this month. At the event, from 10 to 2 both Thursday and Friday of this week, students will receive their caps and gowns and alumni gifts. The drive-through pickup will take place on the south side of the OTC Bookstore, located at the northeast corner of North Sherman Avenue and Bob Barker Boulevard. Typically, the college would host a “Grad Prep” event in April during which students could pick up caps and gowns, get information about commencement, receive their alumni gifts, and find information about transfer opportunities; but that event was canceled this spring due to COVID-19.
