Due to the expected cooler weather on Saturday, December 10th during the Undergraduate Ceremony, we suggest that you wear heavier clothes under your cap and gown. You are more than welcome to wear gloves but no hats or scarves, please. A good option as well is to purchase Hot Hands or Hot Feet for the ceremony.
