In Case of Rain
In case of rain, graduates will report to Pamplin Sports Center, Trophy hallway—to the right as you enter the main doors (instead of Stamm Dining Hall in Templeton Campus Center).
Platform Party Line-up
Rain or no rain, the platform party will gather in the Armstrong Lounge of the Manor House prior to the ceremony. At 9:40 a.m., the Platform Party will move to Pamplin Reception Desk, lining up on either side of the hallway to honor the graduates as they process. (Rain Plan Processional Order .pdf)
In the case of rain, faculty will report to Pamplin Sports Center, Room 10 (instead of Fields Dining Hall in Templeton Campus Center). (Pamplin 10 is tucked around the corner right inside the door leading into the building from the the Lower Pamplin parking lot—just around the corner from the Pamplin elevator.) At 9:40 a.m., faculty and the faculty marshals will move to Pamplin Foyer, lining up on either side of the hallway and in front of the Platform Party members to honor the graduates as they process.

Should commencement day arrive with rain, the reception will be held in Stamm Dining Hall, Templeton Campus Center.
