How many tickets are given to each graduate? The Virginia Theatre is a new venue that is being renovated for graduation weekend. At this time we have not been given information on how many seats will be made available in the space for our use.   

What should I wear? If you are participating in the University-Wide commencement ceremony over the weekend and have a cap and gown feel free to wear it to Convocation. If you do not have a cap and gown most graduates as well as friends and family wear business casual attire.
