Tickets will be required for our commencement ceremony April 29

Changes in the fieldhouse layout, not to mention our climbing enrollment, dictate that we provide tickets to each graduating student who will be “walking” this year. The exact number of tickets has not been decided, but it will likely be 5 or 6.

Tickets will be distributed along with caps and gowns at Gradfest – also a first this year – where students can get all their graduation materials and instructions in one spot on April 19.
