Special Seating on the Gymnasium Floor for Guests with Disabilities

Limited disabled seating is available on the floor for individuals who cannot negotiate or have a disability which would prevent them from accessing the bleachers or stairs. Please Note: This seating area consist of folding chairs behind the graduates; therefore visibility is somewhat limited. Due to the limited number of seats at the floor level, only guests with special needs and up to TWO other family members are allowed access.

Guests needing special accommodations will need to arrive no later than 45 minutes to guarantee seating request and to avoid the crowds in the parking lot and facility lobby.
