All degree candidates should wear their gowns and hoods, but no caps or mortarboard for the Baccalaureate Mass. You may change into your academic robes in St. James Cathedral Hall, entrance on Columbia Street on Saturday. We recommend not leaving any items in the robing hall, especially not valuables or money.
The processional line forms on the south side of Marion between 9th Avenue and Terry Avenue, weather permitting. If it is raining, students should gather in Cathedral Hall. The processional will begin with faculty members leading the group. For this event there is no precise marching order; simply line up two-by-two. Faculty marshals will direct you into pews and organize the recessional from the church. St. James Cathedral is located at 804 9th Ave, Seattle, WA, near Ninth and Marion in Seattle's First Hill neighborhood just blocks from Seattle University.
