Unified Commencement is at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Faculty should arrive by 8 a.m. and proceed to the East Bunker Club Lounge. The easiest access to the bunker lounge is from the ground floor of Garage 1, which is the designated parking garage for faculty requesting parking permits. Faculty arriving by shuttle or taxi should enter through Gate A, ground level entrance at Poydras St. DO NOT ENTER THROUGH GATE G, as there is no direct or easy access to the bunker lounge. Robing is at 8:15 a.m. and the academic procession begins promptly at 9 a.m.
