All undergraduate students should report to Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex at 8:30 a.m. for robing and line-up. Follow the signage to your assigned room where you will be lined up alphabetically. Freeman staff will be available to assist you. Please check your regalia upon receipt to ensure that you have a cap, tassel, and gown. If not, please contact the Tulane Bookstore immediately.
Free parking will be available for students and guests at the Diboll Complex (on Ben Weiner Drive). We also are anticipating additional parking to be available at the Loyola Parking Garage on Freret Street (across from the law school). Both parking garages are expected to be available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
