Notice, 5/12/2014: A power/Internet outage caused by Sunday's storms in Nebraska has delayed the posting of graduate proof photos. They will be posted to the link above as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience.

Seating for guests

All guests will be seated in the bleachers area. (The arena floor will be reserved for graduates.)

Guests with disabilities: If you have guests with disabilities who would like to be seated in the arena, please plan for them to arrive approximately one hour before commencement begins.

After the ceremony

The Faculty Marshals will usher all graduates onto the stadium field at the conclusion of the ceremony. Arranging a rendezvous spot on the track/football field or within the stadium before graduation will facilitate graduates, family and friends finding each other after the ceremony.
