GSU moves graduation inside

Due to rain in the forecast for Friday’s fall graduation, Georgia Southern announced Wednesday ceremonies would be moved from Paulson Stadium to three separate ceremonies inside Hanner Fieldhouse.

College football Hall-of-Famer Adrian Peterson was scheduled to speak at Paulson, and he is now scheduled to speak at the 2 p.m. ceremony only on Friday.

For people planning to attend, each graduate is limited to four guests and a ticket is required for all guests to enter the ceremony at Hanner.

Students graduating each received one ticket, which covers a total of four guests, therefore, the graduate and his or her guests must arrive together. 

Alternative viewing locations will be open at Georgia Southern's Williams Center Multipurpose Room, the Russell Union Theater and the Performing Arts Center.
Here is Friday’s schedule:

9 a.m.

Jack N. Averitt College of Graduate Studies
