Staff Ushers at Commencement

Ushers

A special thank you to staff from all divisions who are serving as ushers at the upcoming August commencement ceremonies will be held in Strahan Arena at the University Events Center.

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 the University Events Center 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 the University Events Center is available if you make reservations by Friday, August 3, 2018. 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 the University Events Center 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 the University Events Center will likely be the quickest way to get to the University Events Center.

All ushers: please meet Lanita Legan at entrance 1 in the University Events Center concourse at the beginning of your shift.

For any general usher related questions, you may contact Holly Tipton at hollytipton@txstate.edu.
