Know What to Expect the Day of Graduation

Student Arrival Time

All students participating in the Klein's Graduation Ceremony at the Liacouras Center must arrive in full academic regalia by 2:30 p.m.

Ceremony Length

The ceremony starts at 3:30 p.m. and is scheduled to end between 5:30 and 6 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 Liacouras Center to meet your guests after the ceremony. For example: Founders Garden at the intersection of Polett & Liacouras Walks, Annenberg Hall or the Howard Gittis Student Center at the corner of 13th & Montgomery Avenue.

Valuables

Please leave all valuables with one of your trusted guests.  

Balloons

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.
