The ceremonies will be held on the campus’ Weisel Senior Terrace adjacent to Old Main. If the weather is bad, the ceremonies will be inside of the Will W. Orr Auditorium.

The number of guests will be limited and social distancing will be maintained.

Everyone will be required to wear a face covering.

The ceremonies will also be streamed live online.
