Bradley University to hold in-person commencement ceremonies next week

PEORIA (HOI) — Bradley University will be holding in-person commencement ceremonies next week, but attendance will be limited to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

University officials said Monday the ceremony will be split into smaller gatherings to allow for more distancing and each graduate will be allowed to bring four guests.

Masks are required and there will be assigned seating, according to the announcement.

Livestreaming options will be made available for those who can’t attend due to the capacity limits.

Visitors and attendees will be allowed to arrive one hour before the ceremony and must depart immediately following the ceremony so we can set up for the next ceremony.

Parking will be available in the Shea Stadium lot and the USDA Ag Lab lot next door. We will provide overflow parking at Cornstock Theatre with Peoria Charter Coach providing shuttle transportation to and from the venue.

Attendees are invited to return to campus after the ceremony for photo opportunities.
