Guests without tickets must sit in the overflow area (Tennessee Williams Theatre LOBBY) with seats on a first-come, first-serve basis. Each graduate will have his or her name called as they walk across the stage and shake hands with the President of the College and the Chairperson of the College Board of Trustees.

A professional photographer is available to take pictures of each graduate as they receive their degree. The graduates must stay until the program ends with the recessional. Family and friends are asked to remain in their seats until the recessional is complete.
