Things to Keep in Mind
The arena is very crowded after commencement, and it can be
difficult for graduates, family members and friends to find each
other. Before the ceremony begins, please decide where you will
meet your family and friends afterward.
If you are making dinner reservations, please remember that
the ceremony lasts approximately two hours and 45 minutes. In
addition, it can take more time than expected for graduates, family
members and friends to reunite and exit the parking lot.
The Spokane Arena does not allow balloons inside its facilities. Please do not bring balloons to the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony.
During commencement, pictures will be taken of all candidates as they shake hands with President Taylor. Orders for these photos may be placed at the arena or mailed to Leo's Photography. Forms will be available at the arena and at the following link:
The Whitworth Office of Alumni & Parent Relations produces a video of the commencement ceremony for purchase. As commencement nears, an order form will be posted to this site.
