Updated Information on Commencement Due to Weather Predictions

May 10, 2017

Due to weather predictions, please take note of a few changes to Hudson Valley Community College's 63rd Annual Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 13.

The ceremony will take place outdoors in the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium with the following logistical changes:

  • Line-up Area: Graduates will line up indoors, in the McDonough Sports Complex field house, prior to the ceremony at 7:30 a.m. Rain ponchos will be distributed to graduates.
  • Indoor viewing area: The ceremony will take place outdoors in the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium as planned. However, a live stream of the ceremony will be available inside McDonough Sports Complex field house. Seating is limited and will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are not required for access to the field house. Doors open at 7:30 a.m.
  • Reception: The post-commencement celebration for graduates and guests will take place in the Conway Ice Rink, located in the McDonough Sports Complex.
  • Diploma covers and programs: Graduates will not be handed their diploma covers onstage. Instead, diploma covers and commencement programs will be available immediately after the ceremony in the McDonough Sports Complex lobby, or at the Registrar's Office during normal business hours starting on Wednesday, May 17.
