UNL Officials Have Back Up Plan For Graduation Ceremony

LINCOLN -- What happens if it rains during UNL's graduation Saturday inside Memorial Stadium? Officials have a plan for that. UNL's assistant registra Jennifer Verhein says the ceremony will initially be postponed for one hour. If the weather continues to be bad, graduates will be moved into the Hawks Championship Center next door.  Because of limited space inside the Hawks Center, only graduates will be allowed.  If severe weather interrupts the ceremony after it is already underway, graduates and guests are asked to please follow announced instructions at Memorial Stadium. Graduates and guests are advised to come prepared with appropriate rain gear. Ponchos, raincoats, and something to cover wet bleachers such as blankets or individual seatbacks are advised for guests. Umbrellas WILL BE permitted in Memorial Stadium.  For more information, go to http://commencement.unl.edu.
