Nickerson Field Procession & Line-Up

If you’re a degree candidate—whether bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral—participating in the All-University Commencement on Sunday, May 18, you’ll want to line up at your designated area for school/college seating and the procession onto Nickerson Field no later than 12:15 p.m.

You can reach the line-up area via Harry Agganis Way. Once there, University Marshals will direct you down the walkway for degree candidates only to the appropriate area for your school or college.

The following candidates will line up together rather than separate by school:

  • Doctoral candidates from all schools
  • School of Law
  • School of Medicine
  • School of Public Health
  • Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine
  • School of Social Work
  • Division of Graduate Medical Sciences
  • School of Theology
