Rehearsal for Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony

There will be two sessions for Commencement Rehearsal for undergraduate students one scheduled for Friday, May 5th, at 11:00am and 3:00pm, both in the Strebel Student Center Auditorium.

What will be explained:
  1. What to wear Sunday (comfortable shoes, for one, as you will probably be standing longer than you may anticipate)
  2. How to get you and your guests to and from the venue
  3. How you’ll line up
  4. How the processional and recessional work
  5. Where you’ll sit
  6. The flow of the program
  7. Clarify who will speak
  8. How diploma covers are handed to you and demonstrate with a couple of your fellow graduates how to accept your diploma cover
Details about seating for your guests and about the reception back on campus afterward will be provided, and any remaining questions about Commencement process.

Refreshments will be provided. See you there!
