University delays Commencement ceremony

| Saturday, May 20, 2017

Notre Dame’s Sunday Commencement ceremony will be delayed one hour, according to an email sent to the community Saturday and to a University press release.

According to the email, the ceremony will take place in Notre Dame Stadium, as originally planned, but will now begin with the procession of graduates at 10 a.m. rather than at 9 a.m. to avoid any storms passing through the area.

Stadium gates will now open to ticketed guests at 8 a.m., and all graduates should report to the north side of Hesburgh Library at that time, the email said.

According to the email, the schedules for all diploma ceremonies on Sunday afternoon remain unchanged.
