Tips for the Commencement ceremony

  • Set up a predetermined location to meet your graduate after the ceremony for family photographs, to meet friends, etc.
  • Bring rain gear.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Bring binoculars.
  • Wear sensible shoes. High heels may sink into the grass.
  • Wear a hat.
  • Wear layers. It could get hot; it could cool down very quickly.
  • Give yourself a full hour to find a seat and get settled. It's exciting to watch the preparations.
  • The seating for Commencement is on flat ground. Please don’t expect to get great photographs. Three photographers will capture the awarding of your student's diploma from different angles. We encourage you to sit back and enjoy the moment.
  • Most of all, celebrate and enjoy this achievement with your graduate—congratulations!
