Ushers needed for graduate, undergraduate commencement ceremonies

Due to the construction of the Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex, the spring 2010 commencement ceremonies will be held off campus at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. With the new location, commencement ushers will be needed more than ever for both graduate and undergraduate commencement ceremonies, which will take place Saturday, May 22.

Volunteers are needed to help greet and welcome thousands of guests as they enter the Metrodome to distribute programs, direct guests and graduates and help seat the mobility impaired.

The graduate ceremony begins at 10 a.m. Ushers report at 8 a.m. The undergraduate ceremony begins at 2 p.m. Ushers report at noon.

E-mail Jeff Kasimor in University Relations by Thursday, April 1, if interested. When responding, list the ceremony at which you would like to be an usher – graduate or undergraduate or both.

An informational meeting for ushers will take place in early May
