2:00pm: Front doors open for family and friends of graduates to enter arena.

Things to Keep in Mind
The arena is very crowded after Commencement, and it can be difficult for graduates, family members and friends to find each other. Before the ceremony begins, please decide where you will meet your family and friends afterward.
If you are making dinner reservations, please remember that the ceremony lasts approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes. In addition, it can take more time than expected for graduates, family members and friends to reunite and exit the parking lot.
The Spokane Arena does not allow balloons inside its facilities. Please do not bring balloons to the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony.
