Great Texas Exit
Graduates and their families and friends are invited to kickoff commencement weekend at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center for the Great Texas Exit. Stop by before the Main Mall event for a casual Texas-sized celebration with free beer and champagne! There will be food trailers, a live band, photo booth, souvenir koozies for the first 1,000 grads, and more! New grads can also save up to $400 on a Life Membership in the Texas Exes. Special new grad Life Member pricing ends Sunday, May 22 at 11:59 p.m.
Backpacks, tote bags or any bags larger than 12 inches in any dimension will not be allowed into any Commencement venue. This applies to all McCombs ceremonies, as well as other schools and the university-wide commencement at the Tower.
In addition, all other bags, including purses, camera cases and diaper bags are subject to search at the college, school and departmental ceremonies. We strongly urge all attendees not to bring bags unless they are absolutely necessary. Visitors bringing smaller bags should expect delays in order to enter the venue and those with the prohibited larger bags will be turned away.
Parking for commencement activities is free in designated areas on a first-come, first-served basis. With the exception of spaces marked “At All Times,” all university parking garages as well as most surface lots are available.
Not able to attend the commencement ceremony? Commencement ceremony videos will be posted in early June. Additionally, ceremonial photos will be available on the McCombs Facebook Page.
