5 Graduations Tips for NAU Students

NAU Class of 2021 Commencement Ceremony

Tip #1: Make sure you are graduating 🎓

If you haven’t checked with an advisor or on LOUIE about your academic progress, then now might be a good time to do that. It would be to your benefit to speak with someone about credits and making sure you have the proper amount to graduate on time.

Tip #2: Find out the time and place for your graduation 🗓️

Do you know for sure when your graduation is happening? From dates to dress code, the website linked below will inform you of everything you may need to know about commencement. Also note that you might be attending a different ceremony than your friends if you belong to separate colleges, so double check now! It can’t hurt.

Tip #3: Make sure your family has hotel and food reservations 🥗

Tip #4: Figure out parking

As a student, you may already know that parking on campus is rough, so you know better than anyone how to guide your friends and family to find parking on your big day. 🚗

Tip #5: Set a “meet-up-place” after graduation 🏫

Hundreds of people will be piling out of the Dome after graduation, so it would be in your best interest to set a game plan of where to meet up with your guests after the ceremony is over.
