Faculty will meet in Jowers Gym 101 thirty minutes prior to the ceremony in order to line up for the processional. The Faculty Marshals will lead the faculty from Gym 101 and follow the Platform Party to the coliseum floor.
The Faculty will process down the center aisle, turn right in front of the platform, and then file into the Faculty Reserved Seating Area (Section C).
