About 1,000 students will walk across the stage of the St. Charles Family Arena to get their diploma as part of Lindenwood’s fall commencement ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 6.

Students participating to the ceremony are expected to check in at the gate 4 entrance of the arena at 1 p.m. After checking in, students will receive a card with their name and lineup information.

The ceremony is scheduled to start at 2 p.m.

Guests will not need tickets to attend to the ceremony and there will be no charge for parking.

Bonnie Barczykowski, chief officer of Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri and a Lindenwood University alumna, will deliver the commencement speech.

Doctors will walk first, followed by education specialists, masters, and finally undergraduates. However, this year students will not walk in alphabetic order like the previous ceremonies, but by school.
