At Memorial Hall (114 E. Cameron Ave.) on Friday, May 11th at 10:15am.

CLASS PICTURE
The class picture will be taken at 10:30am, immediately before we practice the procession into the venue. We will begin rehearsal at 11:00am. Rehearsal will last until 1:00pm. 

ATTIRE
Dress code is Carolina Business Casual.  What does this even mean?  Carolina colors (or neutral colors if you somehow have not fallen in love with this place by now to have purchased at least one Carolina blue shirt).  NO shorts, NO jeans, NO T-shirts.  Polo shirts are acceptable! Please note, you DO NOT have to bring your regalia to graduation rehearsal!

LINE-UP
The Line Marshals will be holding up signs for the row that you will be in. The rows are labeled A-N (Note: there is no Row I). Please line up alphabetically.

CEREMONY REHEARSAL
*Please pay attention to how your name is pronounced. Contact Maureen Rosen (maureen_rosen@med.unc.edu) for any changes. 
If one of your classmates is not at rehearsal and is seated in your row, please leave that seat vacant. Your marshal will tell you what to do.

We will practice the lineup, complete walk through of the ceremony, including the Hippocratic Oath. Additional presentations from:

  • Dan Hill: Disability Insurance Policy Explanation
  • Student awards will be presented at rehearsal as part of the walk-through process.

Graduation Picnic
Afterwards, we invite you and your friends and families (including children and pets!) to join us at the Southern Community Park (near Southern Village, just off of 15-501) large picnic shelter, most easily accessed through the 1000 Sumac Road entrance. This is the same location as College Cup. Lunch will be catered by Gillis' BBQ and will be served at approximately 1pm.  Address is below:
