Commencement Site Diagrams

Know where to be and when

The Commencement ceremony takes place on the lawn west of Hulings Hall.  Graduates must check in between 7:30-8:30 a.m. at tables between Boliou and Goodsell to avoid names being read as "in-absentia". Faculty line up between 8:30-9:00 a.m. on the sidewalk along the east side of Laird Hall.

Parents and guests may arrive as early they wish. We ask that you be in your seats by 9:20 a.m. and that the aisles be kept open for the processional. We also ask that you keep the aisles open throughout the ceremony and take care to not block the view of other guests. 

If weather conditions make it not possible to hold the ceremony outdoors, Commencement will take place inside the Recreation Center. Check the Commencement home page if in doubt.
