By June 7th, 2024. 11:59 p.m. PST.

RSVP here


The ballroom is located on the ground floor of the Memorial Union and will be entered from Jefferson Avenue. This is a 100% accessible entrance. Upon entering the building, follow the wayfinding signs down the hallway to the left to the ballroom. 

How many guests can you invite? Up to four guests per person. Please email us at [email protected] if you require more.

The Memorial Union, where our event is being held, is completely accessible. Please visit the MU's webpage for details and maps showing the location of the elevators and alternate access points.

We have a section of reserved seating for those who cannot stand or walk for long periods. Seating will be otherwise available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Yes. Family members and guests will be seated in the Main Ballroom, but we will have a special assembly area for graduating students. Here you can visit with your Leads, faculty members, and your cohort. We will have refreshments and photo areas available as well. Once the ceremony begins, your cohort will be led to the Ballroom from this area. 

There is ample parking on campus, most of which is FREE after 5:00 p.m. Use this map to locate parking areas close to the Memorial Union or handicap-accessible parking as needed. 

Of course, but we ask that students and guests remain seated during the graduation ceremony so as not to block traffic flow or the view of other audience members. We will be taking photos of every graduate as they meet with Dean Gardner on stage. These photos will be available for download in the days following the ceremony.  

After the ceremony, guests are welcome to take as many photos as they’d like. Photo areas will be set up on the Ballroom floor and faculty and staff will be in attendance. College photographers will also be milling about during this time. 

Photos of the College of Education's graduation and OSU Commencement procession will be uploaded to our Flickr page within 48 hours after the ceremony and can be downloaded as desired.

Yes. Graduates and their guests are invited to stay for food, drink, and plenty of good cheer after the ceremony concludes. A buffet will be available for all to enjoy. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available.

It's a celebration so we encourage you to dress up for this event — and make sure you wear your regalia!
