Ceremony Information for Guests
To ensure that the ceremony starts on time, please ask your guests to be seated in Monarch Stadium by 4:30 p.m.
Also, please remind them to use sunscreen because it may be very warm at that time of day. Mylar balloons are NOT permitted. Finally, there is no smoking in Monarch Stadium.
There will be limited disabled guest seating. Only one (1) guest will be allowed to sit with the disabled person in the designated area.
Free parking is available in Lots B, C, D, F and G for your family and friends. Parking signs will be posted the day of the event. View Commencement Parking Map (PDF).
Accessible parking will be limited due to construction work. Please arrive early if you wish to park in the designated disabled parking area (Ethel Street only-southside). A campus map with parking information can be found under "Parking".
During the ceremony, only graduates will be able to take photographs from the stadium field. Photos and videotaping by guests may be done in the stadium stands.
Bob Knight Photo is the official event photographer. Each student will have an individual photograph. Visit the Information for Graduates page for more information regarding commencement photos.
After the ceremony there will be two photo stations in the parking lot west of the stadium. This is an excellent time to take pictures with faculty, family, and friends.
