What to do after commencement

Meeting your guests

Following commencement, you will be able to meet your guests outside of the Skydome.  Please keep in mind that there is no access to the stage area following the ceremonies.


Many of the colleges host receptions to honor their students. Depending on your college, the reception will either take place after commencement or the day before it. Be sure to check so you can join in on the celebration.

Traffic congestion is heavy during commencement. If you plan to attend your college or school's individual reception, we suggest that you park in a lot near your college or school's reception site and use the free shuttle to and from the Skydome.
