RSVP

Due to the very limited seating capacity of the gymnasium, students are asked to submit RSVP numbers for their guests that will attend the ceremony. As a courtesy, please restrict the number of guests to no more than four to ensure that all graduates may have some guests in attendance.

We do not want to have to turn anyone away at the door because we are over capacity. Please be kind to your fellow students and limit your guests accordingly.

The gymnasium is general seating. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Accessible Seating

Accessible Seating is available for people with limited mobility including wheelchairs and walkers. Due to limited seating capacity, the Accessible Seating area will be able to accommodate one attendant per wheelchair user.

Please note: Family members may drive their vehicles to the lower level of the gym to drop off guests with limited mobility. Parking is available with the other guests in lots around campus.

Strollers

We kindly ask that guests do not bring strollers into the gymnasium as they block the aisles and violate the fire marshal rules. Stroller “parking” is available on the upper level of the gymnasium but users assume all risk with leaving strollers there.

Webcast

Each ceremony will be webcast live and is an excellent alternative for those guests who cannot attend in person. Live Webcast
