To expedite movement of guests through the lines to enter the facilities, we highly encourage guests to consider not carrying a bag, carry a clear bag, or carry a small-sized bag.

Guests are not allowed to bring weapons, including pocketknives, to the graduation venue. Other items such as balloons, signs, noise makers, flowers, and outside food will not be allowed in the venue. Guests can bring a clear water bottle as applicable for health needs.
