Security: Backpacks, tote bags or any bags larger than 12 inches in any dimension will not be allowed into any of the Commencement venues. All other bags, including purses, camera cases and diaper bags will be searched by security officers before visitors are permitted to enter the South, Main, East and West Malls for the University-wide ceremony. These smaller bags are also subject to search at the college, school and departmental ceremonies. We strongly urge all attendees not to bring bags to any of the ceremonies unless they are absolutely necessary. Those visitors bringing smaller bags should expect delays in order to enter the venue and those with the prohibited larger bags will be turned away.  Please plan accordingly and do not bring any packages that cannot be opened or inspected. For more information, please see New Security Procedures.
