For traditional undergraduate students, a total of 10 wristbands will be mailed to the address you indicated when you registered online. One wristband should be allocated for each guest, including infants/toddlers. The wristbands help us keep track of the number of guests in attendance, regardless of age. An infant/toddler would not be required to wear the wristband (a parent should wear for them, in addition to their own), but is counted in the total of 10 allotted to each graduate.
For the Kellett undergraduate and graduate ceremonies, we will not require wristbands for entry. As a result, we will not be limiting the number of guests that each graduate invites to attend, however ask that graduates and their guests are considerate of the needs of others who plan to be in attendance. Seating will be first-come-first-served. If we reach maximum capacity, we will have an overflow area with a livestream available in the lobby of our fieldhouse. Guests can view the livestream from that area, then can reconvene with graduates and other guests immediately following the ceremony.
First aid services, provided by trained professionals, will be available if needed during the commencement exercises.
