Assembly and Procession

  • Assemble in Ehinger Gym at the time listed above. There will be tables and signs identifying your department. Snacks will be available for graduates. Bring your cap, gown, and hood.
  • Go to the table set aside for your department. You will receive a card with your name on it, which will be read during the ceremony.
    • Do not lose this card. Keep it with you and give it to your Dean when you step on stage to receive your diploma cover, as directed by the marshals.
    • Do NOT add anything to the card. No hand-written additions or changes will be read. However, if you think your name will be hard to pronounce, write a simple phonetic spelling in parenthesis. Keep it as simple as possible.
  • Put on your cap, gown, and hood. The Registrar's staff will be available to help you. Baccalaureate candidates place the tassel on the right side of the cap. (You will move it to the left side during the tasseling ceremony).
  • Line up in a double line behind the marshals leading your College.
