Severe Weather

  • Severe weather is classified as lightening or high winds. The commencement committee will be monitoring the weather all week for any indication of possible severe weather that may impact the ceremony and communicate any changes as soon as possible.  
  • Rain is not considered severe weather.  Therefore, the commencement ceremony will proceed if it’s raining. Graduates and guests should dress appropriately for the weather.  
  • Should severe weather occur, the commencement ceremony will be postponed and rescheduled for the next day or a later date, whichever is feasible. There is no alternative plan to move commencement inside due to COVID and indoor capacity restrictions.
