The Commencement ceremonies are long for young children to sit through. Families with young children are welcome to proceed to the Loge in the MAC Center, located on the third floor of the building. The lobby elevator provides access to the suite. Toys are set up in the Loge, where children can move about without disturbing the ceremony or other guests.
Guests with Special Needs
