In the case of inclement weather, the Commencement ceremony will be moved into Marshall Gymnasium which is located in the McManis Student Center.
Inclement Weather Plan:
The decision to move the ceremony inside will be made the morning of Commencement, if necessary due to inclement weather. There will be a message on our weather line (859) 846-5858 notifying participants of the move. Participants should call the weather line for the most up to date information.
• Graduates—In case of inclement weather, please line up in the Piper Dining Hall in the McManis Student Center instead of AHRC.
• Due to the seating limitations in the gymnasium, seating will be limited to only four guests per graduate. This does include children. Four Commencement admissions tickets were sent to each graduate by mail.
• If the ceremony is moved into the gymnasium, your guest(s) must have a ticket to be admitted.
If there is any seating remaining at 10:45 a.m., those individuals without a ticket will have the opportunity to be seated in the gymnasium until capacity is reached. In addition, there will be overflow seating for all individuals in the AHRC Duthie Auditorium regardless of weather. The ceremony will be streamed live to this location.
***Please note - if the ceremony is held outside, there is no limit to the number of guests who may attend. However, provided seating is limited, so we recommend bringing a chair or blanket in case all seating is taken.
