Rowan College at Gloucester County

Announcements and Rain Tickets

What Are Announcements?

Students are given five announcements to be used for family, friends and other special guests. The announcements provide information and other basic details about the Rowan College Commencement Ceremony.


What Are Rain Tickets?

In the case of inclement weather, the Commencement Ceremony is moved into the gymnasium in the Physical Education Center. Because of the limited seating capacity, admission to the gymnasium will be by RAIN ticket only. Graduates will be given two rain tickets prior to commencement for their special guests as a pre​cautionary measure.

If the event is moved because of rain, the College will hold two 
Commencement Ceremonies. These ceremonies will be determined by majors. Times and majors will be announced once the decision has been made to move the graduation indoors.   If the gymnasium has reached seating capacity, guests are invited to watch the ceremony at an alternate viewing area on the College campus. Check or 856-468-5000 for last minute announcements and instructions.

When Can Announcements and Rain Tickets Be Picked Up?

Five announcements and two rain tickets per student will be available at the College Bookstore after March 16, 2018. Stu​dents must provide a valid Photo ID and Student ID number (i.e. - A12345678).
