  • Faculty Processional

    Faculty will march in the processional behind the students and before the Platform Party. Please check-in at the Faculty Table located in the Clarke Field House.  The Faculty will assemble on the terrace; students will assemble and line-up on the right side of the Clarke Field House then proceed down the pathway toward the Mangrum Track & Field.  Staff at the Faculty Table will be available to assist Faculty. 
  • Faculty Recessional

    The Platform Party will exit the stage and ceremony site first, followed by the Faculty. However, rather than exiting the ceremony site entirely, the Faculty will exit the graduate seating area and form a double line immediately beyond it, along the recessional route, so that Faculty may greet students and offer congratulations as the students exit the ceremony site.  The Faculty Marshals will assist in creating this "congratulatory line."  The Students will continue the recessional to the meet and greet area.
