In the event of a forecast of rain, or weather that may prohibit holding the commencement ceremony outdoors on JCU’s Quadrangle, the ceremony will be moved to the Wolstein Center at Cleveland State University in downtown Cleveland. The schedule for Sunday, however, will remain the same, with the commencement ceremony beginning at 11 a.m.
The call to keep the ceremony at John Carroll University, or move it to the Wolstein Center, will be made the morning of Friday, May 16. After the decision is made, the news will be posted on the JCU homepage, the commencement web pages, emailed throughout the University, and emailed to all students.
The official physical address of the Wolstein Center is:
2000 Prospect Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44115.
The Wolstein Center is accessible from either Prospect Avenue or Carnegie Avenue, and is large enough to accommodate all graduates, faculty, administration, and guests. Tickets are not needed.
The Wolstein Center is ADA accessible. You can access the Wolstein Center website at http://www.wolsteincenter.com/.
You will need to provide for your own transportation. No shuttle service will be available from JCU to the Wolstein Center.
NOTE: The following event will be taking place in Cleveland, making it critical to allow plenty of extra time for traffic and parking:
- Cleveland Marathon (races starting at 7 a.m.)
The Wolstein Center will open at 8:30 a.m. Enter the building at the Time Warner Cable Gate (Gate A). There will be a cost for parking in the lots adjacent to the building. A majority of the South Parking Garage on East 21st Street will be reserved for guests, faculty, and alumni.
If you ordered flowers for your graduate, the flowers will be available for pick up at the Wolstein Center at the Medical Mutual Gate (Gate D).
