*All graduates should plan to meet on Back Quad no later than 9:15 a.m.
* Dogs may be brought onto the Hollins campus in exterior spaces if they remain under the immediate physical control of their owner or custodian. However, because some participants or audience members may be allergic to or afraid of dogs and we want to ensure that commencement is a positive experience for everyone, bringing a dog to commencement is discouraged with the exception of guide, signal, and service dogs used by disabled persons in accordance with the Virginia Health and Safety Code. A complete animal policy for the campus can be obtained here.
