This year marks Loyola's 161th Commencement exercises. The 2013 Commencement Ceremony will be held at the 1st Mariner Arena on 201 W. Baltimore Street on Saturday, May 18. Doors to the arena will open at 9 a.m. and the processional will begin at 10:45 a.m. The Commencement program begins promptly at 11 a.m.
Tickets for Commencement are not required and the number of guests each individual graduate may bring is unlimited. We will provide a live stream of the Commencement exercises for those unable to attend the ceremony. The link to the live stream will be available at www.loyola.edu/commencement.
Graduates and their families and friends are encouraged to leave ample time to arrive at the arena. The University strongly suggests that families stay at hotels in close proximity to 1st Mariner to avoid traffic and parking delays.
