Please stay for the entire ceremony, honoring and respecting every graduate and their family members from the beginning to the end. Each person deserves the same courtesy and respect that you would want for yourself.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Commencement Team at [email protected]. We are here to support you every step of the way and ensure that your graduation day is truly memorable.

Thank you for your invaluable input, and congratulations once again on your upcoming graduation. We look forward to celebrating with you and your loved ones at the Kings Theatre.
