Greetings everyone!

Please be in the Lower Gym by 1:30 at the latest. Belongings and personal items will be locked in the Fitness Center (Lower Gym) during the ceremony, but not in the Issue Room.

If you have ordered a cap and gown and are not able to attend, please notify Lisa Smith (x5862, e-mail <lsmi@shoreline.edu>) immediately.

And one final reminder: please be sure to return your cap and gown regalia on Sunday to the, PUB, building 9000, room 9202, during the reception.  We will pack these for shipping the following day.

Many thanks for sharing the celebration of accomplishments with our wonderful students! 

Calling all staff, faculty, and administrators who are not planning to walk at the Commencement Ceremony!

This is an exciting time of year for our students. It takes the efforts of many to put on Commencement, so I am putting out a call for volunteers to serve as ushers as well as others to help set up for the reception that follows on Sunday, June 5th. Ushers are also asked to attend the beginning of the rehearsal on Friday, June 3rd at 1:30 p.m. to listen to a short talk by Robin Blacksmith, Director of Safety and Security. The time commitment on Sunday would be approximately 3-4 hours. Classified staff can earn overtime pay or work with their supervisors to flex the time later in the week.

Show your continued support for students by helping them celebrate this special day in their lives. If you are planning to volunteer, please email Nancy Marshall directly at nmarshall@shoreline.edu with “Call for Volunteers” in the subject line and what you would like to do to help out. You will hear back from me soon with more details about Commencement Day itself. If you have questions, please feel free to call me at (206) 546-4641.

Many thanks,
Nancy Marshall
Dean of Students Office
