Commencement update

This is a special year for commencement ceremonies at Geneva College. Due to the progress of the Beyond the Bend construction project, the long-anticipated entranceway will be open and available for graduates and their families to use.

Those attending the 2009 commencement ceremonies from Thursday, May 14 through Saturday, May 16 will be able to enter the Geneva College through its new “front door” on Route 18 and 31st Street. The dramatic entranceway is marked by a 60-foot long arched gateway with 28-inch high letters spelling out Geneva College and leading to a tree-lined, lit boulevard.

From the entrance, those attending the commencement ceremonies will be able to park in either Alumni Hall parking lot to the left or Freshman lot to the right.  Visitors can then walk down the boulevard to Metheny Fieldhouse for the ceremony.

Adult and graduate commencement will be on Thursday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the fieldhouse.

Baccalaureate will be on Friday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the fieldhouse.

Undergraduate commencement will be on Saturday. May 16 at 10 a.m. In the event of nice weather, the ceremony will be outside in Reeves Field, which is beside Metheny Fieldhouse. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be inside Metheny Fieldhouse. The location will be posted on the Web site the morning of commencement. Also, the Commencement Hotline, 724-847-6100, will announce the location.
