Location: Outdoor Amphitheater, rain or shine!

Seating is first come, first served. Tickets are not required.

Commencement is held outdoors in all but the most inclement weather. Guests should dress appropriately and be aware that hats, sunscreen, or an umbrella may be appropriate. In the event of severe weather conditions, the ceremony will take place in the Williamson Auditorium at Walker Field House and seating will be limited. 

The ceremony will conclude at approximately 12:30pm and all graduates, their families and guests are invited to attend a reception of light refreshments on the Chapel Lawn immediately following.

A live video broadcast will be shown simultaneously in the Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film (CDF) adjacent to the outdoor amphitheater. It will also be webcast live on the Commencement homepage as well as on the College’s Facebook page. The Livestream will begin at 9:45 a.m.
