We ask that graduates wear appropriate business attire and hard-soled shoes with their gowns on Sunday. Smoking and drinking are not permitted at Commencement. Tobacco products and popping champagne corks can cause serious injury to guests and graduates. Do not bring pets; only service animals are allowed.
