    Disruptions - Not Allowed

    • This includes inappropriate applause, yelling, noisemakers, beach balls and balloons.

    Remain Seated

    • Please remain in your seat until the last student receives their diploma.
    • It is important that distractions are limited so that all graduates receive their moment to be properly acknowledged.


    • Please remain seated and do not approach the stage for photographs.

    Save Applause
