The tradition of graduates painting their names on "Old Spart" (the large green rock located outside the entrance of the bookstore) goes on. Stop by after the commencement to paint your name on the rock for all to see. This is also a great spot for taking photos!
Handicapped parking is available in the Wolf Hall parking lot for vehicles displaying the appropriate license plate or hang tag. The parking lot is accessed via the main college entrance on Country Club Road. All other vehicles will be routed to the West Campus parking lots via Richland Avenue to West Campus Drive. Shuttle service will be available from the West Campus parking lots to Main Campus. We strongly urge commencement guests not to park on streets adjacent to the campus. City and township police are likely to be actively ticketing vehicles not displaying an appropriate resident parking permit.

The ceremony will be televised live and shown on large screens in the overflow tent located adjacent to the main tent. The ceremony will also be available for indoor live viewing in the Waldner Performing Arts Center (Humanities Center) and the Admissions Welcome Center (Iosue Student Union). Tickets are not required for admission to viewing sites other than the main tent.
A live stream webcast will be available on the College website, with the broadcast beginning at 10 a.m.
