- 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
- Public Relations/Information to those waiting in line prior to
the gates opening
Assist special needs guests from carts or elevators to their seats
Hand out programs
- As needed
