Graduation is moving back to main campus for several reasons:
  1. The growth of our graduating classes was forcing us to do more than one ceremony even if we stayed at the Civic Center. Another option would have been to limit attendance, which has proven very unpopular.
  2. Because of other paid bookings in the Civic Center, future ceremonies would have been scheduled only on weeknights.
  3. Costs associated with the current location had increased so significantly, fees for graduating seniors would have had to increase.
