Instructions for all ceremonies
Enter the Ice Arena entrance lobby via the east end of the building and report to the second floor.
PLEASE SIGN IN FOR EACH CEREMONY IN WHICH YOU MARCH.
Proceed to your place in the lineup, indicated by a chair with your name on it. Put on your academic garb. The faculty marshal will provide marching instructions, and the processional will leave the robing room 10 minutes before the ceremony is to begin. A program will be on your chair in the Sports Arena where the ceremony takes place.
When you return from either the 10:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. ceremony, the new lineup for the next ceremony will be in place in Ice Arena upper lobby. Therefore, if you are marching again, you may have a new place in the lineup. Please sign in again at the registration table so staff know you are accounted for.
Light hospitality will be available throughout the day for your convenience.
