 Live Stream Instructions*


  • Parking & Shuttle buses: On commencement day, there will be free shuttle buses running between the central part of campus and the commencement ceremony, both before and after the ceremony. The first shuttle buses will begin to run at 12:30 p.m. We hope that as many graduates as possible will park in lots on the central part of campus and use the shuttle buses. That way, those people who may need to park close to commencement ceremony-- those who are elderly or have a disability -- will have room to do so.

  • Reception following commencement:  There will be a brief reception for graduates and their guests in the Tom L. McDowell Fieldhouse immediately following Commencement. Light refreshments of cookies and punch will be available. Please feel free to stay and congratulate our graduates as your schedule permits.
