Commencement 2014

Watch the ceremony live on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 7pm.

 

The graduation ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 9, 2014, at the Campus Recreation Center. Doors will open for seating at 6pm and the ceremony will begin at 7pm. The ceremony will last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes with Brad Wood as the featured speaker.

Seating is limited so each graduate will receive four (4) tickets for guests. Tickets will be provided to graduates at the bookstore with purchase of a cap and gown. New in 2014 - tickets must be picked up by Wednesday, May 7 at noon. Please keep your tickets in a safe location.  Tickets cannot be reissued for any reason.

Seating
  • A ticket is required for each guest who will attend the ceremony.
  • 4 guests allowed with each graduate
  • Children under two who will sit on a ticket-holder's lap will be admitted without a ticket. No strollers will be allowed in the building.
  • The Campus Recreation Center is not air conditioned.
  • Limited seating for wheelchair users and their guests with physical limitations is available. Each special-needs individual may have one (1) guest join them in this seating area. Seating in this section is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Most guest seating is in the bleachers.
Video Streaming

Those who are unable to attend the commencement ceremony will be able to watch it live on the web. The URL will be posted on this page when streaming is available.

Photography

Photographs may be taken at any time during the ceremony. Guests can approach the stage to capture an individual student, but please be considerate of others who may be near the stage.

A professional photographer will be taking candid photographs of each graduate receiving their diploma. They will also be set up in or around Ovalwood Hall prior to the ceremony to take any individual or group photos requested. The photographer, Bruce L. Heflin Photography, will contact each graduate under a separate  mailing to inquire about photo purchases.

Parking

There is no parking adjacent to the Campus Recreation Center. Guests with physical limitations can be dropped off near the front door, but please plan to arrive before 6:30pm to avoid extra traffic as the graduates are marching over from Ovalwood.

Practice

Graduation practice is scheduled for Thursday, May 8, 2014, from 2pm to 4pm at the Campus Recreation Center.

At practice and at the ceremony, graduates will walk up three steps and across a stage. There is also a ramp for any graduate who may require it. If you are planning to use the ramp or need other accommodations for physical limitations, please contact Traci Lykins at 419-755-4733.

After the Ceremony

The front lawn of the Campus Recreation Center will be very crowded with graduates and their families. It may be helpful if you and family/guests meet at a previously agreed upon location, so you can easily find one another.

Graduates will be awarded diploma covers at the ceremony. Actual diplomas can be picked up in person at the Student Records Office from Monday June 2 through Friday June 6. The remaining diplomas will be mailed on Monday June 9.

 

 
Before the Ceremony

Room 100 in Ovalwood Hall will be available for dressing beginning at 5:30pm. Please make arrangements to secure personal items, such as purses, jackets, etc. No security will be provided in the dressing room.

Line up will begin at 6:30pm. Graduates will march to the Campus Recreation Center from Ovalwood in caps, gowns, and tassels.

Caps, gowns, and tassels are required, and can be purchased form the campus bookstore. They will be available for purchase approximately April 15. The cost is approximately $39.00. Caps and gowns must be black. If you are using someone else's cap and gown, you should still plan to purchase a tassel in the color that denotes your major. You may purchase these up to and including the day of graduation during normal bookstore hours. You are encouraged to purchase these items well in advance to insure proper sizing and availability. Please iron your gown.

Those who qualify for honor cords may pick them up in person at the Student Records Office, Kee Hall room 142, from Monday May 5 through Friday May 9. A letter has been mailed to those who qualify.
