  2. Commencement 2002
    Ushers are very important for a well-run commencement program; would you be able to help this year? The OSU Commencement has a very high reputation and the team of ushers has contributed significantly to the success of the event. OSU Commencement ceremonies will be Sunday, June 16th with the graduate ceremony from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. and the undergraduate ceremony from 2:00 - 4:30 p.m.; both ceremonies will be in Reser Stadium.

    Changes have been planned for this year that should make ushering easier for volunteers. Security personnel are expected to be hired for the "difficult" areas including keeping guests out of the aisles where graduates process, requesting people to remain seated to prevent blocking the view of others and to move people in and out of a designated photography section. This will allow volunteer ushers an opportunity to better assist the friends and families of the graduates.

    If you will be able to help with Commencement this year, please contact Joan Sandeno at Joan.Sandeno@orst.edu and indicate your campus e-mail and/or telephone number, as well as whether you are available for the morning or afternoon ceremony, both, or "as needed" and which of the following areas you prefer to assist with:

    • Public Relations/Information to those waiting in line prior to the gates opening Assist special needs guests from carts or elevators to their seats Take tickets Hand out programs
    • As needed
D. REPORT FROM AND DIALOG WITH THE PROVOST
    Tim White, Provost & Executive Vice President
