The Wells Center will open at 7 a.m. for guests. 

Because seating is limited and traffic congestion is expected, early arrival is suggested. 

Please note that Henderson State University is a smoke-free campus. Smoking will not be permitted in or around campus.

Seating areas for guests will be clearly designated. There will be a special seating area for guests with disabilities. 

Guests should stay for the entire ceremony. Leaving before the end of the ceremony causes disruption and disturbs those families whose students have not yet been recognized.
