LINCOLN, Neb. – Potential thunderstorms have altered the start time for Saturday’s University of Nebraska-Lincoln undergraduate commencement ceremonies at Memorial Stadium.
The ceremony has been pushed to 3:00 p.m. CT, an hour earlier than the originally scheduled 4:00 start time. The University said the change was made to help avoid the possibility of thunderstorms affecting the late afternoon event.
Digital tickets will be automatically changed to reflect this new start time. Graduates and guests can begin to arrive at 1:30 p.m.; graduates must arrive by 2:15 p.m.
Saturday’s 10 a.m. ceremony went on as originally planned.
Umbrellas are allowed for guests at Saturday’s commencement ceremonies, and ponchos will be provided for graduates.
Both ceremonies are available via livestream at https://commencement.unl.edu.
