Do people mispronounce your name?

Help us make sure we say yours correctly at your commencement ceremony!

If people typically mispronounce your name, we invite you to send an email to commencementnotifications@csp.edu by Wednesday, December 5, 2018 with either a written phonetic spelling or an audio file to help us get it right.  If you need help determining the phonetic spelling, please visit the Registrar’s Office in the Lutheran Memorial Center- 119. We will then pass your pronunciation to our ceremony readers.
