Where To?

A few helpful hints about the 2022 Commencement Ceremony at Mennen Arena on May 20

  • Graduates should arrive at the Mennen Arena between 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. (no later than 9:30)!
  • When you arrive, come to the main doors of the arena.
  • Graduates are seated by school.
  • Look for the signs at the rink doors.
  • Check in with your school to receive your reader card (this is how your name is announced at the ceremony).
  • Honors stoles are given out to graduates who earned Academic Distinction (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Summa Cum Laude) at the Records and Registration table at Mennen Arena the morning of the ceremony.
  • For information on stoles or cords that are not for Academic Distinction, contact your club or honor society for pick-up.  If you need additional assistance, contact Campus Life at campuslife@ccm.edu or visit the student window in the Student Community Center .
  • Your guests should arrive no later than 9:45 – the doors will close for the procession at this time.
  • If your guests need special seating accommodations, visit the CCM website and submit a request form to reserve accessible seating options.
  • If you need additional tickets for guests, you may request extra tickets at cap and gown pick-up on a first come first serve basis.
