Graduate Diploma Ceremony
Friday, May 17th, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m., Fogelman Arena at Devlin Fieldhouse (corner of McAlister Place and Freret Street). Doors open for guests at 2 p.m.
Tickets are not required for graduating students or their guests. However, seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The ceremony will be simulcast in room 170 of the Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex if guests would be more comfortable at that venue as well as for any overflow.
If you have any families members who require special assistance, please notify the commencement coordinator to arrange proper seating accommodations.
All graduate students should report to Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex at 2:00 p.m. for robing and line-up. Follow the signage to your assigned room where you will be lined up alphabetically by program. Freeman staff will be available to assist you. Please check your regalia upon receipt to ensure that you have a cap, tassel, gown, and hood. If not, please contact the Tulane Bookstore immediately.
Free parking will be available for students and guests at the Diboll Complex (on Ben Weiner Drive). We also are anticipating additional parking to be available at the Loyola Parking Garage on Freret Street (across from the law school). Both parking garages are expected to be available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Friday, May 17, 5:00 - 6:00 p.m., Lavin-Bernick Center (Qatar Ballroom, 2nd Floor).
Immediately following the Freeman Master’s/PhD Graduation Ceremony, graduates will be led by a brass band to a reception on the second floor of the LBC. Guests can reconnect with their graduates at the reception, and champagne and cake will be served.
