Plan to arrive at the Lewy Lee Fieldhouse at least 60 minutes before the official starting time to allow for the assembly process.
Since there are no secure areas to leave personal belongings, it is recommended that jackets, purses and other personal items be left with family or friends. Be sure to wear low-heeled, comfortable shoes since you will be marching and standing a good part of the day.
Upon arrival, all degree candidates should follow this procedure:
• Report to C-120, Classroom Auditorium at 1:00 p.m. where you will receive your name card and a copy of the printed program.
• Line up and be ready for the processional 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the ceremony.
• The President will lead you from the assembly area into the Fieldhouse approximately five minutes prior to the beginning of commencement.
• You will be directed to your assigned seating and will remain standing until directed to be seated.
University commencement ceremonies are special events for all involved. If you choose to participate, please remain for the entire ceremony.
As a courtesy to those around you and to our graduating students, please turn off pagers and cellular phones during the ceremony. We also ask that you refrain from using extreme noisemakers.
A professional photographer from Jacobson Studios will take a picture of each candidate while receiving the diploma cover from the President. A few weeks after the ceremony, a proof of these photos and an order form will be mailed to each graduate. At that time, you may order pictures as desired. This service is provided to ensure quality photographs and to avoid the confusion of many individuals attempting to position themselves for picture taking. Jacobson Studios will also post pictures of the entire ceremony on their Web site a few weeks after the event.
