Dear Graduates who plan to walk in Commencement,

For those of you graduating...this email I received may help you understand
the process.  They have changed the order this year from MED graduating
first to PHD being hooded first...so that may change when you tell family to
come.  This email is for PHD faculty but it explains the process and I am
not sure if they send one of these to graduates so I am sharing!  :)
Delete if is does not apply to you!

See you on Friday!
Dr. Franklin

your students. You will follow your first student up to the platform, then
remain on the platform for each additional student, following your last

platform, where you will meet the Dean of your college, who will assist with
the hooding. Following hooding and hand shakes, you and your student will
cross to the middle of the platform,shake hands with President McDavis, and
then exit the platform. Diplomas are handed out at the far end of the
platform, and this is also where photos are taken. After exiting the
