For non-ticket holders, the ceremony will be live-streamed and can be viewed in the Hemingway Theatre in the Duffy Academic Center or the McCarthy Auditorium in May Hall.

If the ceremony is held outdoors non-ticket holders are welcome, there will be standing room only in the perimeter of the general seating area.

Rain or shine, guests are invited to watch the live-streamed ceremony in the Hemingway Theatre in the Duffy Academic Center or the McCarthy Auditorium in May Hall.
