Please park in the Spectrum and north Stadium parking lots. A shuttle bus will be running continually that day to help transport people to and from the Spectrum and the Wayne Estes Center.

Seating will be limited and each graduating senior may request up to five tickets for their guests. Students must RSVP by April 14 and tickets will be available for pick up in Albrecht Agricultural Sciences Building room 421 beginning on Tuesday, April 18. We recommend picking up tickets prior to the day of graduation, however, students may request their tickets be held in “Will Call” to be picked up on May 6 at the CAAS Will Call table on the AGRS patio from 7:30–8:30 am and in the Wayne Estes Center foyer from 10:30 am to noon. Tickets will be reserved in the student’s name and whoever is picking them up will need to sign for them. If there are tickets left after April 14 RSVP deadline, they will be available on a first come, first served basis to graduates on April 28. Our CAAS graduation ceremony will be streamed live and individuals can watch this event online.

Graduating seniors are to arrive at the Wayne Estes Center no later than 11:45 am so we have adequate time to line up. We will be serving Aggie Ice Cream following the ceremony to individuals with CAAS graduation tickets.

CAAS students and faculty should enter the Wayne Estes Center through the southwest entrance, which faces Lars Hansen Drive. Family members and guests should enter the building through the main east entrance across from the Spectrum.
