Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) About Colby's Commencement
Parents will receive a letter in late February or early March that will include an order form. This letter will include menus and prices. The meal tickets will be issued to seniors from the student post office during Senior Week, which precedes Commencement Weekend.
Should the weather definitely prohibit an outdoor commencement, an indoor ceremony will be conducted in the Wadsworth Gymnasium at the Alfond Athletic Center. This decision is made the morning of commencement. Rain tickets will be issued to seniors with their meal tickets during senior week. Rain tickets are limited to four tickets for each senior due to occupancy concerns; overflow seating for those guests without tickets will be available in the adjoining fieldhouse.
A photographer is on contract with the College to take photographs. Parents should contact Steve Schaeffer at 800 356-7789 about purchasing prints. Due to safety and security, no one will be allowed close enough to the platform to take close-up photographs.
