Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Commencement Ceremony Questions

Good Morning,

I have a few commencement ceremony questions for community colleges:

1.       Average number of graduates that participate?  1000 to 1600

2.       Do you have graduates come across the stage in alphabetical order?  Yes by college

3.       Do you separate associate degrees and certificates in your seating chart and commencement program? N/A

4.       Do you specially identify highest honor graduates? Do you have a special presentation during the ceremony?  We did until about a year ago.  Now we do not.  They are listed in the program.

5.       How many staff do you utilize in the Registrar's office to prepare and execute the ceremony?  Everyone in the Registrar's office including student workers and as many volunteers as possible.  The safety office now assists with hiring people (we pay) to help with crowd control.

6.       If you have 2 ceremonies:

                                                               i.      How do you separate graduates?

                                                             ii.      How far apart are they timewise?
We have 4 ceremonies:
                Friday night:  4:00 PM - Graduates
                Saturday:  Undergraduates:
                                  8:30 am   College of Business & College of Humanities, Social Sciences & Arts
                                11:30 am   College of Science & Engineering and College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources
                                    2:30 pm College of Education
