Be sure to have your cap and gown with you when you arrive (Yes, there have been students who forgot!). Also be sure you have your picture ID. You may want to have a phone or camera to take some pictures before the ceremony, but you may not bring any phones or cameras into the ceremony. Make sure you leave all personal items, including phones and cameras with trusted family or friends before the procession begins. The Intramural Gym will not be secure after you leave, and you may not bring any items into the ceremony.
When you lineup for the procession, you will be given a small card with your name on it. This is the only item you may bring into the ceremony. You will hand this card to the name reader just before you cross the stage to receive your diploma cover. A graduation program will be placed in your chair; you may take it with you when you recess out of the ceremony.
