SAFETY & SECURITY

Security at all public events on campus has increased. This is done to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Wherever possible please leave your bags and similar items in your car or at home. Small bags, pocketbooks, camera bags, etc., will be screened and inspected at designated checkpoints prior to being allowed inside the Commencement venue. No other bags, gift bags, wrapped presents, backpacks, duffel bags, or other such items will be allowed into the Commencement venue. Guests are encouraged to keep their belongings with them throughout the event.

In the event of severe weather conditions, announcements will be made prior to the event regarding delays or postponement.  This information can be found on the Bentley website, on our primary social media channels, and via emails to the senior class.  

In the event an evacuation is necessary during the ceremony, information will be shared from the podium via microphone, on monitors throughout the tent and around campus, and on the Bentley website and our primary social media channels.
