Assembly Points & Procession


Students will assemble at 8:30 a.m. in the University Student Center.  They will, with the assistance of marshals, assemble by college/school:

  • James H. Gilliam, Jr. College of Liberal Arts
  • School of Architecture and Planning
  • Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management
  • School of Community Health and Policy
  • School of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences
  • School of Education and Urban Studies
  • School of Engineering
  • School of Global Journalism and Communication
  • School of Social Work
  • School of Graduate Studies

Students should look for the banner identifying their academic unit.


Once students have assembled, the marshals will lead them down the procession route to Hill Field House. Upon reaching their seats, they will remain standing, facing the stage, until the Chief University Marshal turns the Exercises over to the President and the President instructs them to be seated.
