Undergraduate Commencement:
Monday, May 10 – 10 a.m.
Speaker: Terry Thomas
The ceremony will be held outside in the newly renovated Reeves Stadium, weather permitting. However, if the ceremony must be moved indoors, a ticket will be required to enter Metheny Fieldhouse. The College has created a Commencement Hotline which will have a recorded message of the latest available information about the location of the ceremony, as well as any other late developing information. The Commencement Hotline number is 724-847-6100. Program your cell phone now. There will be an outdoor reception following the ceremony on campus around Old Main.

There will be no overflow seating this year.

The weather forecast for Commencement is expected to be a cool 50 degrees at 9 a.m. and sunny. At this time, we are continuing plans to hold Commencement outside, weather permitting. You are welcome to bring blankets, stadium chairs and thermoses of hot beverages to keep warm. The concession stand will also have hot and cold beverages for purchase. Since the forecast also indicates that it will be sunny and you will be facing the sun during the ceremony, please come prepared with sunglasses and hats since there is little shade in the stadium.
