Baccalaureate Service
Due to the size of our Chapel, the Baccalaureate Service is a ticketed event reserved for no more than five members of each graduate's family. Tickets must be secured through the graduate when they are made available to them in March. The west Chapel doors are handicapped-accessible. 

There will be attendants guiding guests to parking on the south side (cottages and Chapel) of campus, although you are also welcome to park on the north side (academic side), too. A reminder that anyone who parks on the north side of campus MUST use the tunnel to walk to south campus for the Baccalaureate Service and/or Commencement. There will be a number of handicapped spots available on the south campus.

If you have any questions about Commencement, please contact Julie Wickland at or 1.610.363.5381.
