  • Friday, May 22, 2015
  • 7:00pm
  • Epler Gymnasium, Room 9202, Building 9, second floor, Fremont Campus
Two happy female Puente program graduates.
  • Review Academic Regalia (also known as Caps, Gowns, Tassels, and Honor Cords).

  • Graduates need to meet by 6:15pm in Building 7, second floor.

  • Tickets are required for guests. Graduates will receive a maximum of 6 tickets for their guests when they purchase their cap and gown at the Ohlone College Bookstore.

  • Guests should plan to arrive by 6:00pm to get a good seat, as seats will start to fill up quickly after 6:00pm. The graduation ceremony will begin promptly at 7:00pm. Guests who arrive late will be asked to wait outside the gym until after the processional. Please tell your guests to arrive early and inform them about the construction on campus and the closure of the upper parking lots. Guests will need to allow extra time to park in the lower lots and walk up to BUilding 9. More information for guests.

  • Graduates should leave personal belongings (purses, coats, suit jackets, etc.) with family and friends, since there is nowhere to store personal belongings during the ceremony.

  • Cell phones and pagers must be turned off (or silenced) during the ceremony—or, better yet, left outside of the gym.

  • The ceremony will end around 8:30pm.

  • ASOC is sponsoring a Graduation Reception in the Hyman Hall Plaza after the ceremony. Please invite your guests to attend the reception with you.

  • Parking is free for the graduation ceremony.

  • Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the Ohlone campus.
