Instructions for the Class
Members of the Class are asked to arrive and assemble at Billings North Lounge, at 1:15 p.m. (There will be staff available to direct students to the line-up area.)
Student will be placed in alpha order for the procession into Ira Allen Chapel. Please make sure you stay in correct order as the coats on stage have been assembled accordingly. While at Billings, we will review what to expect during the ceremony.
The Class should dress in professional/interview attire without suit coats, blazers or jackets (no jeans please). There will be a coat rack available to you. Please do not bring backpacks, handbags or other valuables as you cannot take them with you and Billings will be open. When you process over to Ira Allen, we want to move quickly since you will be without your winter coat.
Recommendations:Men – wear shirt and tie or sweater with nice pants
Women – nice pants or skirt with top, or dress
Avoid thick sweaters – Women you may want to avoid short shirts. As you will be raising your arm to put on the white coat, you will want to avoid bare midriffs in photographs.
Whatever you choose should be comfortable and easy to manage when your coat is put on by the cloakers during the ceremony.
The Medical School has arranged for photographs to be taken of each student at the ceremony which will be available for purchase.
During the ceremony, family members must remain behind the section of seating for the students. You ARE NOT ALLOWED at the front of the stage.
