Inclement Weather


Commencement will be held under the tent on Boyden Quadrangle rain or shine, except in the instance of extreme weather conditions.  Call 508.531.1777 for weather-related information.  An announcement will also be posted on the Commencement web site. Graduates would receive a text or phone message with additional information.  

Wide screen viewing available in Horace Mann Auditorium in Boyden Hall is an inside option for those guests without a ticket under the tent. It is handicap accessible.

We encourage both graduates and guests to watch the weather forecast and dress according to the ever changing New England Weather. The weather is traditionally cool. Keep in mind the tent is outdoors, and although under cover, everyone will be exposed to the temperature.
