Fort Hays State University > About FHSU > Academic Divisions > Commencement > Viewing And Seating
Faculty will be seated with the candidates at the end of each row on the arena floor of Gross Memorial Coliseum. Persons other than degree candidates attending Commencement are asked to enter the Coliseum through Gates 1, 2, 3 or 4 - not through Cunningham Hall. Relatives and friends choosing to view Commencement in the Coliseum will be seated on the bleachers and in the balcony. Reserving large sections of seats in the bleacher and balcony ares is not allowed.
Seating arrangements for the disabled have been made in the bleacher areas on either side in front of the stage. There are no reservations for this area. One person, if necessary, will be allowed to accompany an individual in this seating area. There is not sufficient space in this area for entire families. The most convenient entrances are Gate 2 and 3. An interpreter for people who are deaf or hard of hearing will be near Section C in the bleacher area. Limited seating within close proximity will be available.
