The stadium gates will open at 7:00 a.m. the morning of the ceremony. Guests should be in their seats by 8:15 a.m. in order to watch the student processional into the stadium. Early arrival guarantees the best seating (see Seating in Folsom Field for specific details). No tickets are required for the ceremony.
The event will be held in Folsom Field regardless of the weather. Colorado weather in May can be unpredictable. We therefore encourage guests to watch the weather forecast so that they may plan and dress accordingly. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in abbreviated form.
