It has rained during recent graduation ceremonies. Ceremonies will proceed in inclement weather. A reminder that the seating area is not covered and the lawns in this area and on campus can become wet and muddy. Please proceed with caution when navigating the lawns- in particular guests with limited mobility should take special care. In case of rain, bring raincoats and appropriate footwear.
Please check the local weather forecast to be best prepared. The weather can be very warm, and there is little shade available at the Commencement site.
In Case of Rain
The ceremony will go forward, on the Commencement Lawn even in the event of rain. Please note the ceremony may be abbreviated to ensure the safety of all graduates, guests, faculty and staff. Speeches could be omitted from the program and names may not be able to be read.
