What to Expect at a Graduation Ceremony

What to Expect at a Graduation Ceremony

Another year of students are eagerly awaiting their Graduation day within the next few weeks so we are here to advise you on what to expect if you are attending a graduation ceremony as a guest or student yourself!

The Running of the Day

The day begins at the campus or event space an hour or two before the ceremony start time so that students can collect their robe and take photographs with family and friends. Formal wear is a must for a graduation ceremony so it is important to put on your best outfit as the photographs will most probably stay in the family for a long time! The ceremony usually lasts for an hour or two depending on the number of students graduating so make sure you have eaten breakfast and are equipped with water to stay hydrated in the hotter weather. It is also important to note that many Universities do not allow guests to bring large bags into the ceremony for security reasons so you will need to ensure you do not bring too many items. Once the ceremony has finished there will be a chance for more photographs, socializing and the return of the graduation robe. If you are planning on eating out after the ceremony then you will need to book to make sure there is enough space for friends and family. Finally, remember that graduation days are a time for friends and family to celebrate achievement so enjoy the day with your friends and family!
