Commencement Transportation


If you need transportation down to Key Arena to attend Commencement, two buses will arrive at the East Marion St. campus entrance to begin shuttle service at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday the 17th. Students, faculty and staff can gather at the Seal located at 11th and E. Marion Street to board the shuttle. The buses will drop passengers off at the south side of Key Arena (Thomas Street and Warren Avenue N.) until the ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m.
