Attending Commencement on the QuadDear Class of 2020,

We are just eight days away from celebrating the Class of 2020 at our socially-distanced Commencement on the Quad! The ceremony will be held Saturday, August 8 at 10:00 a.m. on the Upper Quad.

Here are the details you need to know if you would like to join us:

1. It's not too late to join us. There is still time to purchase your cap and gown by visiting suu.edu/graduation and clicking on the "pay for cap & gown" link on the left-hand side.

2. Pick up your commencement swag at the Grad Fair. Stop by the Alumni House (corner of 300 W and University Blvd) on Friday, August 7 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. or Saturday, August 8 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. to pick up your cap, gown, tassel and a few other bonus items like an SUU mask, hand fan, sunscreen and maybe even an ice cream cone to cool off. Friday is the best day to pick up to avoid lines and delays.

3. Don't miss your walk under the Bell Tower. The beloved Carter Carillon Tradition is not to be missed. Plan to arrive at 9:00 a.m. to line up for the procession, which will begin at 9:30 a.m. Commencement on the Quad ceremony begins directly after the procession at 10 a.m. on the Upper Quad. This university-wide ceremony includes the awarding of all degrees.

4. It's going to be hot. Put away your 3-piece suits and long sleeves. Temperatures are expected to be near 80 degrees at the beginning of the ceremony, so prepare for warm weather. Bring a water bottle, sunglasses and extra sunscreen.

5. There are many ways to watch. Family and guests can sit on the Quad or watch the ceremony live-streamed into the Auditorium, Hunter Conference Center, and Eccles Education Building, as well as on SUTV-9 website and SUU social media channels.

6. SUU will follow and comply with all health and safety guidelines issued by the state of Utah. All guests will be required to wear masks and to physically distance when possible. There will also be sanitation stations throughout the upper campus.

7. Graduates and guests will be asked to provide basic contact information so SUU can comply with state requirements on contact tracing.

We are looking forward to seeing you back on campus and safely celebrating your accomplishments with your family and friends. Please visit suu.edu/graduation for more details, updates, and important information.

Best wishes and see you soon.

President Scott L Wyatt
