Illinois Wesleyan University Graduation
The processional of graduates and faculty will begin at 12:45 p.m. on the Eckley Quadrangle, with the ceremony scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on the Kemp Commencement Plaza in front of State Farm Hall. Our traditional strawberries and scones reception to honor the graduates and their families will occur immediately following the two-hour ceremony. Faculty members will look forward to greeting you on the Quad.
The Commencement ceremony is held outdoors even in a light rain or cool temperatures, and I encourage you to prepare appropriately so you are comfortable for the day. However, in the event of heavy rains or severe weather alerts, we will relocate the ceremony and reception indoors to the Shirk Center on campus. Because indoor seating is quite limited, the family of each graduating senior will receive four tickets for guaranteed seating in the Shirk Center Performance Arena. Other guests may view a remote simulcast of the indoor ceremony at two locations—the Shirk Center Practice Gym and the Hansen Student Center.
