Staff Ushers at Commencement

Ushers

A special thank you to staff from all divisions who are serving as ushers at the upcoming May commencement ceremonies.

Your assistance is very much appreciated during this special day in the lives of many of our Texas State students. As a staff usher, you will be stationed at one of the entrances to Strahan Arena and will greet candidates, faculty and guests, and hand out programs. You will also direct guests to the restrooms, stroller check-in, concession stands, and lost & found if necessary.

Ushers will be provided with a Texas State staff usher t-shirt. When you register for a commencement ceremony, please indicate what size you need, or, let us know you already have a t-shirt.

Khaki or black pants/slacks are suitable. Shoes should be comfortable.

Reserved parking near Strahan Arena is available if you make reservations by Wednesday, May 3, 2017. Please contact Kristin McDaniel to make those arrangements. Kristin can be reached at commencement@txstate.edu. Lanita Legan will be providing a shuttle service to Strahan Arena from the LBJSC bus loop.  Please contact her to make those arrangements. Lanita can be reached at lh23@txstate.edu or (512) 245-8295. However, walking to Strahan Arena will likely be the quickest way to get to the arena.

All ushers: please meet Lanita Legan at entrance 1 inside the Strahan Arena concourse at the beginning of your shift.

For any general usher related questions, you may contact Holly Tipton at he11@txstate.edu or (512) 245-1212.

We will be using a new system for staff ushers to register/sign up.  This system will be rolled out very soon. You will be contacted as soon as it is ready.
