University of Montevallo to hold indoor commencement due to rain forecast | News
MONTEVALLO, AL (WBRC)- The University of Montevallo will hold their Spring Commencement ceremony indoors due to the rain forecasted for Saturday, May 4.
The graduation ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. inside the McChesney Student Activity Center instead of Flower Hill's lawn. Prior to graduation, the UM National Alumni Association reception for graduates will be held at 8 a.m. inside the concourse of the Student Activity Center.
The graduation rehearsal will also be held in the Student Activity Center on Friday, May 3 at 4 p.m.
"Because we have moved to an indoor location, we must issue tickets for the ceremony. As it stands, we will be able to issue seven tickets for each graduate. Students needing more tickets MAY be able to request extras at rehearsal based on availability," the university said in a statement on their Facebook page.
Handicapped parking will be available in a parking lot in the front of the activity center.
Author Cassandra King, who earned a bachelor's degree from UM in 1967 and a master's from UM in 1988, will deliver the commencement address.
