Johnson at Cornell University | Groups

CEREMONIES: The university ceremony in the stadium Saturday morning is a wonderful pageant where degrees are conferred on each program collectively; individual student names are not announced. The Johnson School ceremony on Sunday in the Statler Auditorium is the event where each graduate's name is read as they walk across the stage.

ATTIRE: Throughout the weekend, graduates and guests should dress comfortably (business casual is the norm). Be prepared for crowds and lots of walking; and for assorted weather (hot, wet, cold, etc.) There is little shade/coverage in Schoellkopf Stadium.

PARKING: For weekend parking and bus information, review this page. NOTE: All Central Campus Roads are CLOSED SATURDAY 6:30 am to 5:00 pm. For MOBILITY IMPAIRED PARKING ONLY, you must apply for an accessibility plan permit from the university by May 23.
