President's Procession and Exit

The procession, which includes the president, trustees, marshall, provost, deans, faculty, and invited guests, will follow the candidates into the arena. The audience should stand and remain standing until the ceremony is declared open.

Presidential Processional Exit

All will stand while the marshall leads the recessional from the arena. Once the stage party has departed, candidates will leave the building in the order in which they arrived, meeting up with their guests outside the east-side main entrance of the Don Taft University Center (UC).
