Ceremony Details


Students will walk on stage to receive their faux diploma from the president. Each attending student will have their individual name called and displayed on the jumbotron as they walk across stage. 

Students will then take a photo with the Ramblin' Wreck before returning to their seat. 


  • Tickets are not required. This is a general admission event. 
  • Bachelors and masters will be seated by college on the field. Ph.D. students will be grouped by degree level.
