Commencement / Graduation  2014

Saturday, May 17  2014   10:30am


Outdoor Ceremony

The University of Maine at Farmington’s Commencement will be held outdoors, behind the the UMF Einar A. Olsen Student Center, located at the corner of High Street and South Street.

Admission to the outdoor event is wide open — no ticket required. Because this year’s graduating class is one of the biggest in UMF history, we expect an especially large audience of families and friends. Seating is first-come / first-served, so plan accordingly.

Guests who would prefer to watch the ceremony live over closed-circuit TV may do so inside Lincoln Auditorium, located in the Gwilym Roberts Learning Center, adjacent to where Commencement will be held.

Graduating students, faculty, platform guests will march in their regalia from the UMF Fitness & Recreation Center, located at the corner of Quebec and Lincoln Streets), down Lincoln Street to High Street where they will proceed to the Commencement staging area behind the Olsen Student Center (also on High Street).

In Case of Inclement Weather

In case of inclement weather the Commencement ceremony will be held inside the UMF Fitness & Recreation Center, located at the corner of Lincoln Street and Quebec Street. There will be no outdoor march.

Admission to the indoor ceremony is limited to those with “Fitness and Recreation Center” tickets. Graduating students will have received their allotment of tickets well in advance.

Guests are welcome to watch the indoor ceremony live over closed-circuit TV inside Lincoln Auditorium, located in the Gwilym Roberts Learning Center, adjacent to the Olsen Student Center on High Street, and also in classrooms inside UMF’s Education Center building, located at the corner of High Street and Lincoln Street.
