Rain Ticket Instructions

Why Do I Need Rain Tickets?

While our preference is to celebrate our Commencement Ceremony outdoors on Le Mans Green, the weather in Indiana does not always make that possible. As a result, we customarily plan to host the ceremony indoors in the Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex. And while there is no limit to how many guests can attend our outdoor ceremony, we do have to limit the indoor rain location to five guests per graduate. Those guests will ONLY be admitted when they present a rain ticket.

How Do I Get Rain Tickets?

Each graduate may pick up rain tickets during Senior Week. To receive them, you must bring your student ID to the Moreau Box Office in the lobby of the O'Laughlin Auditorium. Each graduate will receive an envelope containing five tickets which each have a unique bar code assigned. Please note: you may not collect tickets for other students!
Distribution times are:

Monday, May 11 from 9 – 11 a.m. and 2 – 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 – 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday, May 13 from 9 a.m. to noon and 2 – 4:30 p.m.
Thursday, May 14 from 2 – 4:30 p.m.

Please hold these tickets and distribute them to your guests in advance of the ceremony. Remember, lost tickets cannot be replaced! If you do not need all five rain tickets, please turn them back into the Box Office, as we have already received requests for additional tickets.

Remember! In the event of inclement weather, guests will ONLY be admitted to Angela by tickets.  (Graduating seniors do not have to present a ticket to enter the facility.)

Let's all hope the weather is beautiful and will be held outdoors — in which case tickets are not needed.
