Graduates will meet in their cap and gown at 5:00 p.m. in the Recreation and Athletic Center m. At this time we will be checking IDs and issuing wristbands for champagne. Graduates will line up, and the procession will begin.
The Red Doors Revelry immediately follows the Legacy Walk. — a festive champagne toast with classmates, administrators, faculty, and staff on the Main Building Lawn. There will be a special presentation from the Senior Retreat participants and a welcome from the Alumni Board President.
