Security Notice

Commencement 2018

Dear Graduating Students and Parents:

The Boston College Police Department has issued the following guidelines to enhance security and to facilitate the quick entrance of all guests for our Commencement Exercises on May 21.

Luggage, backpacks, briefcases, large bags, and wrapped gifts will not be allowed into or stored at Alumni Stadium or at the respective school graduation sites. We suggest that you leave these items in your car or the student’s room.  Normal-sized handbags, purses, clear bags and camera bags will be allowed but will be subject to inspection prior to entry. Those without bags may enter Alumni Stadium in separate lines.    

These policies are consistent with security plans at colleges and universities throughout the region and are meant solely to expedite entry into our venues and provide security and comfort for those who will be in attendance. Additional security personnel will also be on hand as a precaution.

We look forward to having you on campus for what will be a most enjoyable Commencement day.


John M. King

Executive Director of Public Safety & Chief of Boston College Police Department
