Two happy female Puente Project graduates.
  • Review Academic Regalia (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 4 tickets for their guests when they purchase their cap, gown, and tassel at the Ohlone College Bookstore by the deadline: Friday, May 6, 2016.

  • 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.

  • Guests without a ticket have the option of viewing the ceremony in the Jackson Theatre in the Smith Center or watching the ceremony on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Jackson Theatre tickets will be available at the will-call table located off the second level of the parking structure. These tickets will only be available on graduation night on a first-come, first-served basis. (Map of Pathway to Overflow Seating in Jackson Theatre at the Smith Center (PDF).)

  • 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 at the Promenade by Building 7 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.
