  1. On the day of commencement navigate to: 

  • Parking & Shuttle buses: On Commencement Day, there will be free shuttle buses running between the central part of campus and the commecement 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.
