Graduate Hooding Ceremony tonight

If you will attend the Graduate Hooding Ceremony tonight, please be reminded that Thompson-Boling has a “clear bag” policy in effect for this event, but we want to keep getting the word out. For details you can go to our Security at the Ceremony pages, and we would appreciate your help in letting people in your department know about this policy to avoid unpleasantness at the entry checkpoints. Also, since there are other commencement ceremonies happening today, it would be prudent to plan for extra time to arrive (6:00 p.m. for participants), as traffic may be heavy. As for parking, the Directions and Parking page has information about where to park.
