At 7:30/12:30 go to the Special Events Room to make sure the room is set up. Please note faculty members serving as master advisers should not be in your group! Redirect them outside to Hutchison field. Master Advisers must line up with their students on Hutchinson field.
Faculty will enter at the Northeast Arena level and assemble in the Special Events Room (main floor) by 8 a.m./1 p.m. A list of participating faculty will be in your supply box. Please indicate which individuals attended and add names of faculty not listed (some just show up on the day of the event). Assist faculty with their robes and hoods.
At 8:45 a.m./1:45 p.m. begin lining up faculty inside the Special Events Room for the processional. At 8:55, faculty should begin walking to the Southeast stairwell by going up the stairs near the Special Events room to the lobby level and turning right down the hallway. The commencement coordinator will cue the faculty when it is their turn to process.
Please note the faculty will process without staff volunteers leading them down the center aisle. Faculty members will sit in the front row of chairs (near the stage) on the main floor and fill the seats closest to the center aisle.
The order of the procession is:
- The college banner carrier-single, by themselves
- Candidates-double lines
- Faculty-double lines
- The marshal single, by themselves
- Chancellor and Dean and finally the stage party- double lines
At the conclusion of each ceremony reorganize your supply box and make sure you have enough materials and resources for the next ceremony.
At the end of the day please pack up your supplies and check you materials back into to the volunteer room.
