As we prepare to celebrate our 151st Commencement on Saturday, May 20, we want to assure our graduates, their family members and friends, and our campus community that a wide range of safety and security protocols will be in place at the Sports Arena this weekend.
We ask that graduates, family members, and all others attending or participating in any of our ceremonies plan accordingly and expect that gaining entrance to the Sports Arena* may take a few extra minutes as you pass through our security checkpoints. Additionally, to speed up our screening process, please refrain from bringing any bags—large or small—to Commencement. Faculty and staff marchers and volunteers should enter the Sports Arena at the Graduate Lineup entrance. Signage will direct you.
Warmest wishes and congratulations to the Class of 2023! We look forward to celebrating and recognizing the extraordinary accomplishments of our graduates.
