Students: Graduation Day
May 20, 2013 at 4:30 p.m.
Comcast Center, University of Maryland, College Park
No tickets are required
for guests at the Smith School Ceremony. Graduates participating in the Smith
School’s Ceremony should report to the Pavilion (auxiliary gymnasium) of the
Comcast Center (Room 0601) for the line up.
During the ceremony we ask that all graduates and
guests remain seated throughout the entire ceremony in order to provide full
recognition to all graduates. Upon arrival, graduates should obtain their announcement card from
the information table in the Auxiliary Gym. After obtaining your card, find the
area labeled with your major and get in line. As the procession begins, please
stay in single file order so that you may be seated correctly. At the
appropriate time, marshals will lead the graduates to the platform one row at a
time to receive their graduation scrolls. You will hand your card to the person
at the microphone, walk to a Dean to shake hands and proceed to the table to
shake hands with your Chairperson as you receive your scroll. Your diploma will
be mailed to you following official clearances for graduation.
We ask that you stay for the entire ceremony as not to disturb the students,
families, and other guests.
