Tickets for Commencement Exercises

By M. H. Morgan

There are 1232 seats in Sanders Theatre. Six hundred of these are reserved for the candidates for degrees to occupy. This leaves only 630 for distribution and therefore the candidates for degrees cannot receive the tickets for their families and friends which they would naturally desire. Last year there were eleven hundred and forty-five degrees given. Of the 630 seats, about 270 are given to members of the Corporation, Overseers, friends of gentlemen who are to receive honorary degrees, representatives of the press, Marshals of the different degrees, Commencement speakers and the higher members of the teaching staff. This leaves about 360, which are distributed by allotment, under the supervision of the various Deans, to candidates of the different departments of the University for their friends.
