Message to graduates

As was mentioned at commencement practice, we are communicating that due to the forecast of rainy weather this evening, we are making CHANGES to tonight’s commencement logistics:

  • Students will now check-in at the GYM instead of the Lecture Center in the Main Building. For preparing and gowning (what typically takes place in the Lecture Center), we will be using room PE 407, the aerobics room. Signs will be set up in the gym to direct you there.
  • Please continue to park in the upper (Main Building) parking lot. All gym parking will be needed for your friends, and family. (The dirt lot used for overflow parking west of the gym lot is already a big mud pit and will be off limits for safety reasons, putting a squeeze on available spots in the gym lot.) Those in need of handicap parking will still park in the designated spaces in the gym lot.
  • Shuttles will be available to the graduates from the main building parking lot to the gym. Signs will be set up directing you along the way. Shuttle pick up and drop off points will be clearly marked.
  • Please give yourself extra time tonight for these added logistics for this commencement. We still need to be ready to go no later than 5:00, and commencement is still scheduled to begin at 6:00 pm.

Thank you so much for your assistance with these changes!
