The procession begins promptly at 4 p.m., and the ceremony lasts approximately two hours. The Alumni Greek Theatre is an open-air amphitheater. Due to capacity issues, graduates are asked to limit the attendance of family and friends in the Theatre to six people and direct others to the live streaming location in Orton Center. This historic outdoor venue has very limited accessibility for people with disabilities, and no shade. It may pose challenges to guests who have difficulty walking or negotiating uneven steps. Limited ADA-accessible seating is available at the back of the Theatre for guests with disabilities and one companion. Guests with special needs should plan to arrive early to ensure adequate seating as space is on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating cannot be reserved, and early arrival is recommended. No strollers are allowed in the Alumni Greek Theatre.
