Spring 2020 Information

This information is for those marching in the Spring Commencement Ceremony on the Dahlonega Campus. You will enter the doors at the bottom level of the Convocation Center by taking the blocked road between the Center and the Alumni House. You may also follow the graduate check-in signs (grads will be on the event level). Once you check in, our Marching Faculty team will direct you to room 118 on the event level. Commencement Staff will give you instruction for marching once you have arrived in the room.

  • Please arrive 45 minutes prior to your ceremony.

Parking Information

A parking map is below for your reference. Please note that heavy traffic is predicted for the ceremony. The event parking map shows that you, as participants, should park in the Newton Oakes Lot (L16) or Memorial Hall Lot (L19). The Blue Shuttle will be running to the Convocation Center. Please note that any of the parking areas not reserved can be utilized (around drill field, College Circle, etc.) but please expect to walk to the Center from any of these other locations. Be sure to allow for plenty of arrival time due to the high volume of traffic.
