Simulcast Information & Rain Plan

With Commencement taking place outdoors, at the Courtyard of Le Mans Hall, there will also be an indoor, live webcast viewing of the ceremony on a large screen in O’Laughlin Auditorium, Moreau Center for the Arts — rain or shine.

Tickets for admission to Commencement will only be necessary if the ceremony is held indoors. The rain location is Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex.

Each graduate will be allotted five (5) tickets for an indoor ceremony.

In the event of rain, guests without tickets for admission will be directed to O'Laughlin Auditorium, Moreau Center of the Arts, to watch a live webcast of the Commencement ceremony.
