Guests and visitors may park in the parking lots adjacent to the auditorium where the commencement service will be held. Concordia personnel will be stationed throughout the lot to guide you as you park and to assist with directions. Parking is limited, so please carpool whenever possible. If the lot adjacent to the auditorium fills up, you may be asked to park in a lot further away. Please follow personnel instructions. A golf cart will also be available for transportation from the parking lot for students and guests with mobility issues.
Out of respect to our graduates, guests are asked to find their seats before the service begins.
You are understandably proud of the accomplishments celebrated here. While you are more than welcome to take photographs from your seat during the service, guests should not stand in the aisles or block other guests’ view. This is out of respect to our graduates. We are also in a place of worship. Only official photographers will be permitted around the stage area or in the official photgrapher area.
Two pictures of each graduate will be taken by a professional photographer from Flash Photography. One photo is of the student as they shake hands with President Thomas Cedel on stage, and the other is an individual picture taken in front of a backdrop after the student leaves the stage. Flash Photography will then contact the student to purchase photos if they wish.
Please do not hinder the progress of graduates in any way during the service. Any group photographs should be taken prior to or after the service.
As a show of respect for our graduates, all guests are asked to wait for graduates, regents, and faculty to fully exit the auditorium before leaving their seats.
