JSU welcomes your family and friends to the commencement ceremony. Ample seating is available at Pete Mathews Coliseum. To ensure that all graduates, the last to cross the stage as well as the first, are appropriately recognized, guests are asked to remain seated throughout the ceremony. After the ceremony, President Meehan will be available to reenact the awarding of diplomas for family photographs. So that graduates and members of the audience may clearly view the proceedings, we ask that close up photographs and taping be delayed until after the ceremony.
