Dress

There is no formal dress code enforced during Convocation however, it is a formal event and you will see most people dressed in semi-formal attire. Because of large numbers of people and the fact that Convocation is held in the spring and early summer, the facilities are often very warm and you may wish to dress accordingly.

Food & Drinks

No food or drink (other than water) will be permitted in the Convocation Areas. After each ceremony, there will be a reception with light refreshments for those in attendance.

Guests with Special Needs

If you will be attending one of the Convocation ceremonies and have a special need regarding mobility or anything else, please contact the Convocation Coordinator at least two weeks prior to the ceremony you will be attending in order for us to best accommodate your needs.
