Commencement 2018 logistics and line of march

The 2018 LLCC Commencement ceremony will be held this evening at the Bank of Springfield Center and will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. with the processional. Attached is information regarding Commencement logistics (parking, layout of the center, etc.) and line of march. Please review this information thoroughly.

Regarding parking: The Old Capitol Art Fair is this weekend and artists will be arriving today to set up. Some downtown roads are blocked off and parking may be at a premium, including the Horace Mann parking lot.

Regarding line of march: The line of march is more of a guide as opposed to a hard and fast rule. If you believe you should be somewhere else in the line, feel free to move there.  The faculty marshalls this year are Beth Hoffman and Dean Butzow, and they will direct you to the appropriate location during the seating process. There are 10 seats in a row. So if there are last minute no-shows, you may be bumped up a row depending on the 10-in-a-row seating arrangement.

The line of march will be posted in several locations to refer to upon your arrival. Please line up according to your  line (line “A” [left]  or line “B” [right]) and row number, which will also be posted. Please do not congregate at the front of the line making it difficult for others to get to their assigned place in line.

Commencement is a time when the focus is on our graduating students and their accomplishments. We appreciate your attendance at the ceremony and look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our students together.

Facilities Services conducting deep cleaning starting May 20

LLCC Facilities Services will be conducting a deep cleaning of certain areas during the summer semester, beginning the week of May 20, 2018. While every effort will be made to work around the official academic and event schedules, you may notice that there is carpet still damp from shampooing the night before or limited access to a particular area for a short period of time. Your patience is appreciated as this necessary service is performed.
