Safety is Important for the Graduate Hooding Ceremony

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.

Brasswind Quintet to Play at the Spring 2018 Graduate Hooding Ceremony

The Graduate School is pleased to have the UT Faculty Brasswind Quintet play at the Spring 2018 Graduate Hooding Ceremony. Made up for four UT music faculty members and one graduate music student, this ensemble performs regularly on campus, throughout the greater Knoxville area, and throughout the state and region. They have premiered many brass quintet works by various composers, including pieces by UT composition faculty. Maintaining a busy and diverse chamber music performance schedule is central to the pedagogy these musicians share with their students, and is a critical link to engaging the arts and arts-education communities of the state of Tennessee.

Clear Bag Policy at the Spring 2018 Graduate Hooding Ceremony

Anyone planning to attend the Spring 2018 Graduate Hooding Ceremony should be aware that Thompson Boling maintains a Clear Bag Policy for the security of everyone. We have a page with a basic guide to the policy, but to be sure what you can and can’t bring to the ceremony, you may want to check the Thompson Boling site. If you are a participant in the ceremony, realize that there is no secure place to leave any of your items, so we recommend that you don’t bring anything that you can’t carry securely on your person.
