Western Seminary Commencement Ceremony

Sacramento Graduation: Commencement

Getting There

The commencement ceremony location will be held at On-Site Rocklin on the Bridgeway Christian Church campus on Saturday morning, August 16 at 10:30am.  A light reception will follow the commencement ceremony until 1pm.

 

Seating

The location should have ample seating for all your family and friends. However, depending on the anticipated attendance, tickets may or may not required.

Attire

Guests often wonder what attire is appropriate for the commencement ceremony.  Most people wear either nice pants or skirts/dresses.  It’s a dressy occasion, but not formal.

Children

We encourage guests not to bring children under five, or older children who might have difficulty sitting quietly for the entire ceremony (approximately 90 minutes).  Mothers of nursing infants are invited to bring their babies, but they’re encouraged to sit in the back of the room.

Cell Phones

Please turn off cell phones, and please remind your guests to do the same so as not to disturb others during the ceremony.

Reception

We will be having a light hors d’oeuvres reception following the commencement ceremony.  Enjoy visiting and taking pictures with family, friends and faculty.
