Graduates should be at the Utica Memorial Auditorium by 3:30 p.m.  Proceed to the lower level and look for a sign indicating their academic major.  A faculty member will line graduates up in alphabetical order and give them a card with their name on it.  ALL CANDIDATES MUST BE IN CAP & GOWN, IN PROPER ORDER BY 3:45 P.M. Guests of graduates should go to their seats on the upper level (no tickets are required).
