Volunteers needed for Commencement

No public tickets will be offered to this year’s Commencement, which begins at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, May 30. Each graduating senior has been provided four tickets, and other members of the student body will not be allowed to attend, unless they have been given a ticket by a graduating senior. However, because of the larger venue, many volunteers are needed to welcome and host this event. Tasks include welcomers/ticket takers, assistants for seating in the stadium and on the football field, general traffic control, and directing the processional/recessional. If you are interested in volunteering for these tasks so you can be at the ceremony, please contact Janeen Stewart at 352-8331 or janeen.stewart@wartburg.edu by Wednesday, May 12. She will follow up with further details.


Though non-graduating students will not be able to attend Commencement in person unless they have a ticket or are volunteering, all are welcome to gather on the central area of campus after the ceremony, wearing masks. The ceremony also will be streamed live on Knight Vision.
