Make hotel reservations as early as possible. Most hotels in the immediate area book
up 12-18 months in advance.
Make arrangements for you and/or fellow guests in need of special accommodations during
the ceremony. Keep in mind that the Events Center is an athletic arena with bleachers
and stadium seating.
Arrive no earlier than one hour prior to the ceremony.
Obtain guest tickets from your graduate.
Review maps and parking information. Parking is free, but the earlier you arrive, the less likely it is you will find
a spot. Be mindful that there may be a ceremony before yours.
Open-captioning is displayed on all screens at the Events Center. An American Sign
Language interpreter is also located on the stage (stage right) for all ceremonies.
Sitting in section 101 will give you the best opportunity to see the interpreter.
Plan to meet your graduate outside of the Events Center after the ceremony.
