Arrival Protocol

  • Each graduate, along with up to 4 family members or guests, will be assigned to arrive on campus in one-minute intervals. 

    • Please review the marching order and each graduate’s check in time on the 2020 Graduate Walking Partner List that is attached to this document.  

    • The staggered schedule is in place to assure that we are honoring health and safety guidelines that restrict the size of gatherings so we ask that all who participate arrive 5-10 minutes before the assigned check in time and leave the campus as soon as your group has completed the parade..

    • Graduates and family will enter through the gate located outside the 300/500 hallway and enter the main building through the 100/500 hall door at their assigned time.

    • Your route through campus will end at the south parking lot, and you will return to your car from there via sidewalks. 

      • Families are encouraged to walk up Ruth Street, but we will have transportation by golf cart available for those in need.

      • Families can also have someone drop you off in the north lot and pick you up in the south lot, you are welcome to arrange for this.

  • All who attend will be required to wear masks.  A mask will be provided for anyone who may not have one. We ask that each participant wear a mask at all times, other than when taking photos.

  • Seniors are encouraged to wear their cap and gown, with any honor cords you have earned. Graduates are allowed to decorate their caps if they choose.
