Following the Commencement Ceremony at 2 p.m., traffic patterns may change to facilitate all vehicles exiting campus. Please follow directions of the Campus Safety officers.
Immediately following the Commencement Ceremony: the area directly in front of the Anderson Center will be cordoned off to permit pedestrian traffic only. This is subject to change weather permitting.
This restriction is an effort to accommodate for graduates and their families as they exit the building to enjoy a photo opportunity, share some time with friends and reflect on experiences at Misericordia University. Please note that this temporary pedestrian-only area will remain in effect for a limited period of time to allow for safe exit of attendees from the building.
