Both events will take place in the Breslin Performing Arts Center, first floor of Obal Hall on the Lodi Campus.

Appropriate Dress for Commencement

The event will be a combination of standing and sitting, so make sure you are dressed comfortably for both. Those wearing pants should consider dark pants and shoes. Those planning to wear heels should consider a low heel. Guests should dress business casual.


Tickets will not be required for entry into the auditorium. However, seating is limited and the auditorium will accommodate only five immediate members of each graduate’s family. Family members will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the auditorium seating reaches maximum capacity, as set by the Fire Marshall of Lodi, all additional guests will be directed to the Goya Dining Hall to view the ceremony on a large screen television.


Permits will be required. Details will be available soon.
