Immediately following the ceremony, a reception will be held for the graduates and their guests in the Taylor Center, rooms 221- 223.


Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony you're attending to ensure seating in the gym. Downstairs doors will close 20 minutes before the ceremony begins. After capacity has been reached, or the processional begins, no one will be permitted onto the first floor, even if they have reserved seats. When seating on the second floor has reached capacity, guests will be directed to the alternate viewing sites in Goodwyn Hall 109 and 112.

Alternate viewing site: 

Accommodations have been made in Goodwyn Hall 109 for guests with small children, for anyone arriving after the ceremony has begun, or for guests who are unable to find seating in the gym. Reserved seating: 
The chairs on the floor of the gym are reserved for graduates, faculty, and guests with special needs. If circumstances will prevent you from using the gym seating, please contact the Registrar’s Office to reserve special seating.  Email us at   

Guests with small children: 

The alternate viewing area is available to guests with small children. If you choose to be seated at the gym, please find seating on the second floor.  The restrooms are located on the second floor.  

Remain for the entire ceremony: 

It can be very distracting when guests leave during the ceremony. Please remain seated until the graduates have left the building.

If a guest leaves the first floor, for whatever reason, they will not be allowed back onto the first floor after the ceremony begins.

Cell phones: 

Please turn off or silence cell phones.  Do not make or receive calls from the gym during the ceremony.
