A campus tour for those interested will take place at 12 noon.

While parking may be available near the Bultman Center (where graduates gather before the ceremony) and Rowenhorst Student Center (where the ceremony will be held), we recommend you park in the lots north of the DeWitt Learning Commons and Christ Chapel, as there will be more availability and the lots are near where the post-commencement reception for M.Ed. graduates is held.
