Celebrating the class of 2012
An academic parade of graduates, faculty and staff members in regalia will begin at 8:45 a.m. near Johnson Hall and proceed along 13th Avenue to Matthew Knight Arena for commencement ceremonies.
College, school and department ceremonies
University commencement in the arena will be followed by the individual ceremonies of UO schools, colleges and departments at either noon or 3 p.m., in various locations on campus. Here's a map (pdf).
No tickets will be required at any of the 2012 graduation ceremonies, and graduates may invite as many guests as they choose.
Grad fest events
Between ceremonies, graduates and their guests may visit ongoing Grad Fest events on 13th Avenue, in front of Matthew Knight Arena. Grad Fest will include food vendors, dining areas, a photo booth, the DuckStore, student performances and other activities throughout the day. UO museums and academic buildings will also be open for public visits.
Parking at Autzen, shuttles free
Campus is expected to be busy with activities, and parking may be challenging. Free shuttles will run from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday between the Autzen Stadium parking lot and a load/unload spot at 13th Avenue and Agate Street. Faculty and staff are being encouraged to use the service, as well.
