Commencement is a time to celebrate and enjoy the achievement of our graduates. It is also a time to reflect on that achievement and to acknowledge the help and support provided by family, friends, faculty, and staff. Please honor the spirit of this important occasion by conducting yourself in a manner that is respectful of all participants and their guests.
Out of respect for those with hearing aids, and in recognition of the dignity of the celebration, air horns and other devices that may intrude on the enjoyment of our graduates and their guests are prohibited. In addition, University policy prohibits the use of alcoholic beverages and tobacco on its campus.
Thank you for your help in making this day memorable for all.
