We are projecting the largest graduating class in Middlesex history. Because of this, seating has become extremely limited for both graduates and their guests, raising concerns about comfort and safety for everyone.
Therefore, we have made the following adjustments to make this day enjoyable for graduates and their guests:
- You do not need a ticket, but graduation regalia will be required for entrance to the auditorium.
- TICKETS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER THE AUDITORIUM.Commencement tickets will be collected at the entrance to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium.
- No additional tickets are available.
For the safety and comfort of our guests, backpacks and other large bags (including gift bags) will not be permitted into the auditorium.
All other bags are subject to voluntary inspection.
Middlesex Community College will host a reception for graduates and their guests directly following commencement exercises in the Lowell Cowan Center Cafeteria. Light refreshments will be served.
