Assembly Area Map
Commencement will be held in Spartan Stadium, located at South Seventh and East Alma streets. The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m., rain or shine, with a procession from the assigned assembly areas (see map below) into the stadium. Graduates must arrive by 8 a.m.
Be sure to allow sufficient time for parking and walking to the stadium. The stadium ceremony will end by approximately 11:30 a.m.
Upon arrival, all participants should go immediately to their assigned assembly areas displayed in the map below.
Graduates must arrive at your assembly area no later than 8 a.m. Procession starts at 9 a.m. You will not be admitted onto the stadium floor with the graduating class after the procession into the stadium has ended.
At the assembly areas, look for signs identifying your college and department. Baccalaureate degree candidates will assemble by college with the faculty of their major department. All master's degree candidates will assemble with their colleges, at the front of each college's procession.
Please do not take anything to the assembly areas that must be stored during the ceremony. There are no facilities for storage at the stadium. Due to the difficulty of walking on the stadium turf, appropriate shoes are recommended.
Further details about the order of march will be furnished by the faculty marshals at the assembly areas.
