Commencement 2019

Join us for Puget Sound's 127th Commencement Ceremony! 

When and Where

This year's Commencement Ceremony, celebrating the Class of 2019, will be held on Sunday, May 19, at 2 p.m. The ceremony will take place in Baker Stadium, rain or shine. Guests may watch the live stream of the ceremony inside Schneebeck Concert Hall. The field house is equipped with a large screen, which will display the same video of the ceremony as shown below.

Guest tickets are required to attend the Commencement Ceremony. All tickets are complimentary. Each graduate will receive 6 guest tickets. All guest tickets are for general admission seating. In addition to seating in the Baker Stadium bleachers, ground-level seating will be provided on Peyton Field. Seating will open at noon, and is first-come, first-served. Specific seats may not be reserved in advance.      

Tickets are not required for children under the age of two who will be seated on a parent or guardian’s lap. Current Puget Sound students, faculty, and staff do not need a guest ticket to attend, but must present their Logger Identification Card for entrance.

Additional Guest Tickets

Please drop off any unused tickets to the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations in Jones Hall Room 102 or Campus Mailbox #1078.

We ask that students confirm the attendance of their guests before requesting additional tickets, so that tickets are available for all who need them. We will do everything possible to ensure that students are able to invite as many family and friends as they wish. We recommend checking with your fellow graduates to see if they have any unused tickets they can give to you. The Office of Alumni and Parent Relations has a waitlist for students who need additional guest tickets. Please contact Erin Tyrrell, assistant director, at or 253.879.3624 to be added to the first-come, first-served waitlist.
