The Graduation Ceremony
Faculty attending the ceremony should be in proper academic regalia. Please meet at 5:15 p.m. in the locker room area (Rooms 152, 157 - Women; Rooms 149, 150 - Men) of the Convocation Center to robe and assemble for the procession.
Faculty should enter through the BACK RIGHT DOOR (if you are FACING THE BUILDING) - not the front entrance.
Doors to the arena will be closed at 5:45 p.m.; the processional will begin at 5:50 p.m.
The Faculty Processional line up is single file. Faculty should line up in order of rank. Chairs should be filled one row at a time, beginning at the front.
Children should not accompany faculty if the faculty member plans to participate in the processional and sit in the faculty section. Cellular phones and/or electronic devices should be turned off.
