Know What to Expect the Day of Graduation
Student Arrival Time
All students participating in the Klein College Graduation Ceremony at the Temple Performing Arts Center (TPAC) must arrive in full academic regalia by 3:30 p.m.
The Klein College Winter Graduation Ceremony starts at 4:30 p.m. and is scheduled to end between 6:o0 and 6:30 p.m.
Avoid the Crowds-Designate a Meeting Place
Due to the possibility of pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic, avoid the crowd by picking a location away from the Temple Performing Arts Center (TPAC) to meet your guests after the ceremony. For example: Founders Garden at the intersection of Polett & Liacouras Walks, Annenberg Hall Atrium or the Howard Gittis Student Center at the corner of 13th & Montgomery Avenue.
Please leave all valuables with one of your trusted guests.
Balloons are a visual distraction that block the view of guests from seeing their loved ones. We respectfully ask that you and your guests do not bring balloons.
