Students should look for signage designating the meeting location for their particular program: AA, BA, BFA, MLA, MPhil (Liberal Arts), IMPA, MBDS, MES, MSAG, MAPP, MMP, MPhil (Dynamics), and MSOD. Report to the administrator assigned to your program area for check-in and to determine your place in the processional line. Students will process in proper order from the robing area into the theatre/ceremony starting at 3:45 p.m.
