ADVISORY: COMMENCEMENT COVERAGE
EDITORS AND NEWS DIRECTORS: If you wish to cover commencement
ceremonies July 31 at Hancher Auditorium, please contact University Relations
(319-335-0557) or University News Services (319-384-0000). Here are some
guidelines designed to assist members of the news media while respecting
the needs of graduates and their families:
* Doors open one hour before starting time. Please use the west entrance
to the Hancher lobby. The door will be marked and a University Relations
staff member will be there to assist you.
* No tripods, flashes or lights may be used inside Hancher Auditorium,
and no cords or cables may lie on the floor. In other words, please bring
your batteries and be prepared to shoot from the shoulder.
* Photographers may shoot from the back of the house or from the balcony.
We ask that you be in position before the start of the processional.
