Don't Have a Ticket? Watch Commencement on the Big Screen
April 30, 2009
In an effort to provide the opportunity for every interested family member, friend and community member to view SUU's 110th annual Commencement ceremony, Southern Utah University has established several overflow sites for those without admission tickets for this Saturday morning's festivities.
All overflow areas will provide a live television feed on a big screen, where those wishing to support this year's graduates will hear from SUU Preident Michael T. Benson, LDS President Thomas S. Monson, and this year's student body representative Natalie Brooke Gunn. The live telecast will begin at 9 a.m. in several locations across SUU's campus and the city:
SUU's Sharwan Smith Center Theater (immediately east of the Centrum Arena),
SUU's J.L. Sorenson Physical Education Building (on the north end of campus),
SUU's Randall L. Jones Theatre (on the east end of campus),
the LDS Institute Building (just north of campus),
and the Heritage Theatre in Downtown Cedar City (just off Main Street and University Blvd.)
Additionally, the 9 a.m. ceremony, where the University will hear from this year's keynote speakers and award honorary doctorate degrees to LDS President Thomas S. Monson, noted local artist Jimmie F. Jones and the late philanthropist Edward Rondthaler IV, will also be broadcast live on SUTV, Cable channel 9.
