In Case of Rain

If it rains, Commencement will be relocated to the East Campus Gym, and guest tickets are required and limited to two per graduate. (The Gym has limited seating and tickets are accepted at the doors on a first come first serve basis until Gym is filled to capacity. Turned away ticket holders can watch via live feed in the Main Auditorium. When Commencement is held in the Stadium, tickets are not required and graduates may invite as many guests as they would like. Rain tickets for the ceremony will be issued in the Bookstore when picking up caps and gowns. (Do not lose rain tickets, replacements will not be issued.) In the event of rain, the 4:30 p.m. Student Line-Up will take place in Founders Hall instead of the Gym.
