Commencement 2019



Distribution of tickets

Commencement tickets will be distributed to students at rehearsal on Friday, May 22 at 2 p.m. in the Scott Amphitheater (severe weather location is the Lamb-Miller Field House).

As a reminder, each member of the Class of 2020 will receive four (4) tickets for their guests to attend Commencement in the Scott Outdoor Amphitheater and two (2) tickets for the Lang Performing Arts Center (LPAC) where we provide a high-definition live video stream of the ceremony.  While the amphitheater is always filled to capacity, there is additional seating available in LPAC.  Therefore, 15 minutes prior to the start of Commencement, seating in LPAC is available to those without tickets.

Please note: The Scheuer Room in Kohlberg Hall and other campus spaces will be available for viewing graduation in the comfort of air conditioning and with close proximity to restrooms.  These locations do not require tickets. Guests consistently remark on the comfort of these spaces and, most notably, the wonderful quality of the high definition video streaming that we are able to provide.  Live streaming in Spanish and Mandarin is also available online during the Commencement ceremony.

Tickets are not required for Baccalaureate in the Scott Outdoor Amphitheater.  However, in the event of rain, tickets are needed for the Baccalaureate rain location,  Lang Performing Arts Center (LPAC).  Seniors will be given these tickets at graduation rehearsal.
