UT wants to ensure that all participants and their family and friends have a safe and enjoyable evening at the Fall 2018 Graduate Hooding Ceremony. There are security protocols that you should be aware of when planning to attend. Thompson Boling Arena has a Clear Bag Policy in effect for its events, and the hooding ceremony is no exception. In addition, there are metal detectors that will be used at the entrances. In order to help you be prepared, we have created a page with guidance on these policies. Be sure to read about what you can bring and what you shouldn’t bring, and leave yourself some extra time when arriving, so you don’t experience any delays.
