Before the Ceremony

The Academic Procession assembles 1 hour prior to the ceremony. If you are a faculty member and want to join the Academic Procession you will need to wear a black gown and bring your own regalia. We have black faculty gowns that can be used for the ceremony located in our gowning area.

Ceremony details

There is no secure storage space available in the Ballroom or Marshaling Room for personal belongings.
