Roses For Sale


You're invited to celebrate your graduate's hard work. The Ashland University Honors Program is offering roses for Commencement. Rose bouquets are typically given to the graduate by a family member (the purchaser) after the ceremony. Rose orders will be available for pickup from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. as you arrive at the gate to the Dwight Schar Athletic Complex's Miller Stadium on the day of Commencement.  In the event of inclement weather, when the ceremony would then be relocated to Kates Gymnasium inside the Physical Education Center,  all orders will be available for pickup in the lobby of Kates Gymnasium.   

A variety of colors will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Quantities are limited and colors cannot be reserved. Earlier pick up results in better selection! Rose orders MUST BE picked up BY 10 a.m. Orders not picked up by this time will be donated to a local charity. We regret that refunds cannot be made for orders not picked up.

Graduates and parents of graduates will receive a rose order brochure as part of the Commencement mailing that they will receive. For additional questions, please call 419.289.5260.

Roses can be purchased online through PayPal
