Ceremony Order of Events (Tentative)

8:30 AM -- You will meet in Building 5 to line up and get organized. Listen very carefully to staff and faculty; they are there to help you. Volunteers will be wearing a yellow sticker that says "ASK ME".

10:00 AM -- This is when it all happens and it goes by quickly! Enjoy it.

  • Commencement Marshall will lead the platform guests to the stage.
  • Faculty/Staff and Graduates will proceed to their respective seating areas.
  • You will hear multiple speeches and then will be led to the stage. Keep your name cards with you. When you cross the stage you will give your name card to the reader. You will get your diploma cover and be congratulated by President Hamilton and board members.
  • Cross the stage and walk down the ramp where the photographer will take your picture; then, volunteers will usher you back to your seats.

Please remain seated until the ceremony is over. You will walk out the same way you walked in. We hope you enjoy your celebration.
