COMMENCEMENT RAIN PLAN

Based on student requests in 2016, Georgia Southern changed its Fall Commencement ceremony to an outdoor location. We realize that weather is unpredictable, and therefore included an alternate plan in case of inclement weather. Unfortunately, rain is in the forecast for this year’s Fall Commencement date, and our plan must be implemented. To ensure a positive experience for all graduates, we decided to move the ceremony to an indoor location. We ask for your full cooperation as we host three Fall Commencement ceremonies in Hanner Fieldhouse this Friday, Dec. 8.

See the Fall 2017 Commencement Brochure (p. 8) for details on our rain plan.


Here are a few points to remember concerning the rain plan:

  • Arrive at least one hour prior to your ceremony start time.
  • Each graduate is limited to four guests at Hanner.
  • Tickets are required for any guest(s) to enter the ceremony at Hanner Fieldhouse.
  • One ticket covers a total of four guests. Therefore, all four of your guests must arrive together.
  • Your guest ticket was sent to you along with your name card.
  • Alternative viewing locations will be open at the Williams Center Multipurpose Room, the Russell Union Theater and the Performing Arts Center.
