The Commencement Ceremony

Commencement will be held at the Hilton Baltimore Hotel, Key Ballroom, on Saturday, May 23rd.  The processional begins promptly at 9:30 a.m., so guests should make sure to be in their seats by this time as they will not be permitted to enter the Key Ballroom once the procession has begun.
