The title was a little alarming, warning Seniors to “Pick Up College Graduation Dangerous Weather Tickets.” While this could also sound like a really cool concert, perhaps an additional graduation perk, it’s really just a little premature graduation preparation:
Your guests will need these tickets only if severe weather and dangerous conditions (continuous downpour and lightning) necessitate moving the ceremony to the Palestra, where space is limited.
As if navigating parents and siblings and g-parents around campus wasn’t hard enough, now Penn is asking us to choose our two favorite. The horrors!
From the email:
Only ticketed guests will be allowed into the ceremony and seats will be assigned. A decision to move the ceremony indoors will be made by 3PM on the Sunday, May 16th and announced via the following ways:
-during the second Baccalaureate Ceremony
-KYW (1060 AM)
-WXPN (88.5 FM)
-University emergency weather line (215-898-MELT)
-Graduation hotline (215-898-GRAD)
-College homepage (www.college.upenn.edu)
-College page of the Penn Portal (www.upenn.edu/penn_portal/view.php)
