University Graduation Celebration
Tickets are not required for any university commencement ceremony. Graduates may bring as many guests as they wish.
Matthew Knight Arena will open at 7:30am for guest seating and all guests should be seated by 9:00am. Guests will be able to enter the building through the North and East entrances. Accessible seating will be available for guests requiring accommodation. If you need access to a sign language interpreter or a member of your party needs wheelchair-accessible seating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and faculty will gather for line up in front of Johnson Hall at 8:30am in regalia. Starting promptly at 9:00am our walk will start down 13th Avenue to Matthew Knight Arena. As graduates enter the arena, you will be greeted by staff, family and friends who will cheer you on as you are seated for the celebration. Graduates who participate in the Duck Walk and University Graduation Celebration will receive a commemorative gift. The ceremony will begin directly after the Duck Walk.
What makes Duck Walk more than just an academic parade is that students are dressed in regalia and asked to carry signs, decorate their mortar board cap, or wear symbolic family or organizational pieces. This is where each and every student can shine as an individual. Is there something that symbolizes your major? Does your student organization have a logo? Do you have a special message for Mom and Dad? Check out this video.
To be announced.
There will be four booths located around campus (see Commencement Map). Feel free to stop by one of these booths to request assistance or ask a question.
