The reception will be held in the Australian Garden section of the Arboretum (Arboretum Grounds Map).  There is no admission fee for guests attending the anthropology reception.  There will be light refereshments and coffee available.


This is a casual event, so caps and gowns are not necessary.  The venue is an outdoor space and somewhat rustic. Please wear comfortable shoes (we recommend avoiding heels to traverse the rough terrain) and wear layered clothing.  Foggy mornings can be quite chilly, but it can get warm when the fog burns off.  Unfortunately, there is not much shade, so hats or umbrellas are highly recommended to protect against direct sunlight. 


Limited parking is available on the Arboretum grounds. We ask that only one vehicle per graduating student parks on the Arboretum grounds. No permit is required for parking at the Arboretum.  

***Please note that all official graduation commencement ceremonies for undergraduate students are offered through the Colleges – students interested in participating in the commencement ceremonies should inquire at their College Office.***
