Congratulations, Gator graduates and guests! The following will help prepare you for commencement weekend, scheduled for August 7 and 8, 2020.

Helpful Tips

Give yourself extra time. Graduation weekend is fun and exciting, but it’s also busy. Give yourself plenty of time to find parking, ride the shuttle or walk to the ceremony. Also schedule time between the beginning or end of a ceremony and reservations you might be making.

Pre-plan. Decide as a family where you’ll meet after the ceremony, finding each other in a crowd can be challenging. Remember the Heisman statues and Bull Gator are the most chosen meeting spots, so consider choosing alternative locations.

Review security policies. The O’Connell Center uses metal detectors and does not allow oversized bags (bags must be 15” x 9” x 6” or smaller). Check your pockets and bags before getting in line to enter the building.
