Well, at least walk at graduation this year. If you are on track to graduate this year, 1.) Congrats! 2.) there are some things you need to know and get in order before the big day in a couple weeks.
You will need to get tickets so your proud family can watch you walk. Tickets must be obtained in advance as no tickets are available on commencement day (April 24).
Now for the big day and what to expect.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable event, please leave any bags you may have in your vehicle. All bags brought in are subject to search by security personnel, including purses, cases, diaper or shopping bags. Do not bring in anything that can’t be opened or inspected. If you bring bags in, allow extra time for inspection.
