Some of these enhancements shall include, but are not limited to; additional police presence, thorough security inspections of all involved areas, establishing limited points of entry, and prohibiting large bags, backpacks, and containers from entering the Commencement area.
We ask that you share with your guests our request for cooperation and consideration as we work together to make your Commencement safe, secure, and a celebration for all to enjoy.
