Graduation rehearsal will be held at 8 a.m. on June 7th at the Mullins Center. All graduating seniors must attend this rehearsal, which will last approximately two hours. Please enter the Mullins Center via the ground level doors on the west side of the building (facing the town of Hadley) for rehearsal. Lot 67 is available for rehearsal parking. Note – University parking regulations are in effect if you park in another lot. Students have been issued tickets in the past.
The Graduation Ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. tonight, June 7th at the Mullins Center. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. for the ceremony. Handicapped parking is provided in the metered lot on the N/E corner of the building. Balloons of any kind are prohibited in the building. This includes mylar and helium ones as they interfere with lighting and equipment. The Mullins Center has installed metal detectors for the safety of its users, and staff will be available to assist you at all entrances.
In order to preserve the dignity and ceremony of the occasion, we ask that parents and guests remain in the seating area during the ceremony, and not climb down onto the floor of the stadium. After the ceremony, the barriers will be removed so families can reunite. Since the Mullins Center staff must break down the facility set-up that evening, we ask that you not loiter on the floor.
For those who cannot attend the ceremony at the Mullins Center, the event will once again be live-streamed at https://livestream.com/UMassAmherst/ARHS2019. Please share the link with any friends and family members who want to share in this milestone event.
Congratulations to the all in the Class of 2019!
