Ceremony Details for Families

2019 Brookhaven College Commencement Ceremony

Thursday, May 16


3815 Spring Valley Road

Addison, TX 75001 

Doors open at 5:45 p.m.

Ceremony begins promptly at 7 p.m.

The guest entrance is located at the front entrance of the Loos Field House. We are pleased that you will be able to share this special occasion with your graduate. For the safety, comfort and enjoyment of all guests, please carefully review these instructions.

Graduation is to be a respectful event. Family and friends should listen quietly to all student and college speakers and refrain from shouting as names are called. Please be respectful of all graduates and their families. Every family wants to hear the name of their graduate as she or he walks across the stage. To help expedite the end of the ceremony and because space within the lobby of the Field House is limited, we ask that you meet your graduate outside of the Alfred J. Loos Field House following the ceremony. 

Parking is free for the graduates and all guests.

Children may not be left unattended at any time. Children who are guests at the graduation ceremony are the responsibility of their parents. Please keep your children with you throughout the ceremony. We appreciate your attention to these concerns, both for the safety of the children and the enjoyment of all other guests attending this important occasion.

No outside food or drink is allowed in the Alfred J. Loos Field House.

The arena floor is reserved for graduates and approved college employees only; however, for anyone requiring wheelchair access there will be space available behind the graduates on the arena floor.
