6.   We are planning on having a fairly traditional commencement ceremony on Saturday, July 11th at 10:00 am in the Fieldhouse.  This event will be Livestreamed.  However, there will be some restrictions/modifications to the graduation ceremony including limiting the number of guests allowed per graduate.  Each graduating senior may bring 2 guests to the ceremony using a ticket system.  We hope to expand this number of tickets if possible.  An alternative/virtual commencement will take place that same weekend if the traditional ceremony cannot take place due to health-related restrictions.
