Decorum

The 2017 Commencement in the Carrier Dome will accommodate all guests comfortably. While a spirit of joy and enthusiasm is encouraged, the dignity of this important occasion should not be devalued. Please be courteous to all speakers.

Candidates and guests may not carry into the Dome bottles of champagne, sparklers, firecrackers, or any objects that might present danger or disrupt the ceremony. Balloons are prohibited; they interfere with the Dome’s blower system. Smoking is not permitted in the Dome. We ask you to help make Commencement at Syracuse University a proud moment in your lives.

For additional venue guidelines, please see Security.
