How can we view the ceremony online?

The ceremony will be live-streamed for viewing if you or your guests cannot attend in-person. The link will be available at the week of the ceremony.

What should graduates bring?

Please arrive dressed in your regalia. You will need to navigate stairs and walk quite a distance. Please consider this when choosing your footwear for the day as the procession moves quickly. Leave all personal belongings (including cell phones and purses) with your guests. We regret that Reynolds cannot take responsibility for any lost or stolen items.
