Parade Ground Conditions
Please exercise caution when walking on the parade field for graduation this year. The soft ground was damaged while erecting the tent and there are numerous ruts both outside and under the tent. Public works and facilities will not be able to mitigate all the uneven ground and this will be a concern for elderly or handicapped guests. NDU faculty, staff and students should inform their guests to be very cautious while navigating the parade field, and be cautious themselves while moving about during the ceremony. NDU staff will be assisting guests at -- and under -- the tent; please ensure that anyone you see who needs assistance makes it safely to their seat. All personnel should avoid shoes with a high heel or a narrow base; they are not recommended for wear on the parade field.
The weather forecast for Thursday is "Sunny, with a high near 77. Northwest wind 9 to 14 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph." Graduation will occur outside.
There are no changes to the briefed uniform, which is as follows:
