Because of a significant threat of rain overnight and on Saturday morning, Emporia State University officials have decided to move commencement ceremonies indoors.

“The National Weather Service is predicting a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms and rain through the night and increasing the chance of rain to 40 percent through Saturday morning,” said Mark Runge, director of facilities for Emporia State.

Under the inclement weather policy, commencement ceremonies will be held at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in two locations:

  • Undergraduate degrees will be conferred at White Auditorium, 111 E. Sixth Ave. This ceremony will be available by live video stream. Click here for more information.
