Event Staff Preparations

Please know how much the Commencement Committee appreciates all your hard work to make commencement 2016 a success.

More than just the culmination of an education institution’s academic year, commencement is a public acknowledgment of achievement and one of life’s milestones. Your part in making that experience as meaningful as possible cannot be underestimated.

All commencement event staff were sent specific assignments and instructions via email the week of May 2.

If you are scheduled to assist and did not receive an email with your assignment and instructions, please contact Angela Vachetta Turnbull at amvachet@loyno.edu.
