Important: In addition, while we understand that Commencement is a day of excitement for not
only the graduates but also YOU, their families and friends. We welcome praise for
the graduates, but we ask that all guests refrain from barking, excessive yells and
other disruptive forms of behavior. Behaviors like these not only lengthen our ceremony
but can stop a graduate's name from being heard by their family and friends.
Please respect all of our graduates so that each family may hear his or her graduates
name on this very special day. These forms of behavior lengthen the ceremony and are
aganist our rules. Any guests that violates this may be asked to leave the ceremony
by a staff member.
