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

All guests and ceremony participants will need to proceed through the security area, located on the turf field, in order to access the Baccalaureate and Commencement tent.

Wherever possible please leave your bags and similar items in your car or at home. Small bags, pocketbooks, camera bags, etc., may be subject to inspection and screening at designated checkpoints prior to being allowed inside the Commencement tent. No other bags, gift bags, wrapped presents, backpacks, duffel bags, or other such items will be allowed into the Commencement tent. 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.

If you see something suspicious, please contact a Bentley staff member or the University Police at 781.891.3131.
