Graduates

University-Wide Ceremony at Citizens Bank Park

  • Parking
    Graduates should park in one of the lots indicated on the map [PDF]. Parking lots will open at 7:30 a.m. Tailgating is not permitted in any of these lots.
  • Entrance to the Park and Credentials
    Graduates will gather, by College/School, on Phillies Drive, between Darien Street and Citizens Bank Way no later than 8:30 a.m.  See map [PDF].  Graduates must wear regalia to be admitted to the Park. Please consult the Citizens Bank Park's Guest Code of Conduct for those items that can be safely carried into the Park and those that are prohibited.
  • Procession of Graduates
    The graduating class will process from Phillies Drive, through the tunnels underneath Citizens Bank Park, and directly onto the field on the right field side. As graduates emerge from the tunnel onto the field, PhanaVision will capture the moment on the two Jumbotrons in the Park. Graduates will then process around the first base warning track into their seats, on the 100 Level, directly in front of the stage. Please note that the warning track is made of clay, and that material tends to cling to footwear. Please chose your shoes accordingly. Women should avoid heels since they will be uncomfortable to wear on the warning track and because graduates will have to climb up a short set of stairs, over the dugouts, in order to reach their seats. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to actually walk on a major league baseball field and to catch a glimpse of the inner workings of Citizens Bank Park!
