Bags and Safety Information
The College recommends that Commencement guests evaluate the contents of their bags and pockets as they may be subject to search, as needed. Guests are prohibited from bringing balloons, backpacks, coolers and duffel bags inside the Pavilion (Gym). Bags larger than 1 cubic foot (12" x 12" x 12") will not be permitted unless there is a medical or child care related reason; in such cases they may be subject to additional security.
Due to safety considerations, staff and faculty are not allowed to bring bags of any kind to the Commencement ceremony.
Best practice is to leave all bags at home.
