In Case of Rain


Historically, spring in Reno is beautiful and pleasant. We occasionally experience heavy rains or other severe weather. In these rare cases, the University of Nevada, Reno will shift the main campus commencement events indoors to Lawlor Events Center.

If this is the case, the School of Medicine rehearsal will take place in the Silver and Blue room in the lower level of Lawlor Events Center beginning at 9:00 a.m.

We would anticipate starting our program as scheduled at 1:00 p.m. with a 12:30 p.m. processional line-up. However, it is important that University of Nevada, Reno graduates have a meaningful ceremony, and we will accommodate their schedule as needed. As such there is a possibility of a delay in our program.
