There has been unprecedented interest in the Baccalaureate Service on Sunday, May 21, and we want to accommodate the hundreds of graduating students, their parents and friends, who wish to participate in the program. Therefore, we have moved Baccalaureate from Irvine Auditorium, which has limited seating, to Blanche P. Levy Park (College Green), which will enable us to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend.
We hope you will join us on College Green for the Baccalaureate Service at 3 p.m., and also the preceding concert at 2:15 p.m.
In the event of rain, the program will be held in the Palestra, located on 33rd Street just north of Franklin Field, from 4 to 5 p.m.
--Rosemary McManus, Secretary of the University
