Inclement Weather Plan - Undergraduate Commencement

The Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony is held in George Finnie Stadium, allowing graduates to bring as many family members and friends as they wish. However, in the event of rain or unsafe conditions (e.g., lightning) the event may be moved indoors to Ursprung Gymnasium.

In the case of inclement weather, the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony will be held in the Ursprung Gymnasium (in Lou Higgins Center), 136 E. Bagley Rd. (directions).

If weather forces activities indoors, the BW homepage ( and the BW Information Telephone Line (440-826-2330) will post this announcement as soon as the decision to hold the ceremony indoors has been made that morning (generally by around 10 a.m. the day of the ceremony). The flags outside Finnie Stadium would also be lowered to half-staff if the ceremony is to be indoors.


Tickets are only necessary in the event of rain or unsafe conditions outdoors. Click here for more information on tickets.
