The University announced today that the start time for the May 1 commencement ceremony was moved back one hour to 11 a.m. to provide additional time for participants to get through security checkpoints.
"We want students and their guests to have plenty of time to comfortably make it to campus and through security at the stadium, so that they can enjoy this historic event honoring the achievements of our 2010 graduates," [President Mary Sue] Coleman said.
The stadium gates will be open at 6 a.m. Graduates and their families and friends are encouraged to come early to allow adequate time to park, shuttle or walk to the stadium, and get through security. Specific information about where to park and enter the stadium, and what items are permissible, will be forthcoming.
