Oregon State University and Reser Stadium conduct security checks to ensure the safety of all our guests. We strive to provide an enjoyable experience and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
PLEASE NOTE – ALL guests entering the stadium will be subjected to bag checks.
ATTENTION: The flying of drones is prohibited at Reser Stadium during Commencement activities.
In the event of an emergency, an announcement will be made from the Commencement stage to direct graduates and attendees to exit Reser Stadium in a safe and orderly manner.
If such an event were to occur, please move to the nearest stadium exit (PDF) as quickly and safely as possible.
Graduates, family and friends, please refer to the map and relocate to either Gill Coliseum, the Merrit Truax Indoor Practice Facility, the CH2M HILL Alumni Center or The LaSells Stewart Center.
Once you have arrived at one of these locations, please use mobile phones to arrange to meet your graduate or family member.
Guests declining inspection or in possession of prohibited items will not be allowed into the stadium. Guests in possession of prohibited items inside the stadium will be asked to leave immediately. A guest who does not leave when asked will be considered a trespasser. Guests who are disruptive during the ceremony will be removed from the stadium immediately and will not be allowed re-entry.
Guests assume all risks and damages associated with attending the Commencement Ceremony, which may include activities that are risky and dangerous involving injury and loss.
