Prior to the ceremony, we will hold a reception from 3:00-5:00 pm on the back patio/terrace of the Student Union.  Undergraduate and Graduate students and their families are invited to participate in this festive event with faculty and staff members.  Refreshments will be served.  Students do not need to RSVP for this event.

Candidates for the ceremony need to report to the Field House by 5:00 pm; Gampel will open its doors to family and friends at 5:00 pm as well. Graduates will be limited to 10 guest tickets each for the Commencement Ceremony. If you or your guests are in need of additional tickets or accommodations, please email and include your name, cell phone number, and the number of additional tickets you are requesting. All names will be added to a wait-list, and as Commencement grows closer our office will contact you regarding your request. We will do our best to meet all reasonable requests.
