8 a.m. – Legacy Photos – The Point
It's great that many students discover HC for the first time each year, but it's through our alumni families that the heritage of the College passes from generation to generation. To commemorate the senior legacy student(s) and their family at graduation, a professional photographer will take their photo which will then be mailed to them on a CD. Photos will be taken in five-minute increments beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 9:30 a.m. Reservations are a first-come, first-served basis and can be made by contacting Christy Hughes, Director of Alumni Relations at email@example.com or 812-866-7012.
9:30 a.m. – Seniors will assemble in caps and gowns
Seniors will assemble in caps and gowns north of Classic Hall no later than 9:30 a.m. Wearing a cap and gown is mandatory unless excused in advance by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
10 a.m. – Commencement – The Point
The processional begins at 10:00 a.m. Commencement will be streamed live for friends and family who cannot attend and would like to view the ceremony. The link for the broadcast is https://www.hanover.edu/about/events/live.
(Due to COVID-19, alternate rain site plans are not being made as an indoor event will not be feasible.)
Senior Class Celebration
Immediately following commencement, the Office of Alumni Relations will provide a celebration for seniors and their families. A light lunch with non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. More details are coming soon.
Please remember that Hanover observes Eastern Daylight Savings Time.
