A Message from President Avent 5.2.24


As you prepare to step on stage and receive your well-earned diploma, it’s important to take a moment and recognize the significance of the commencement ceremony. Commencement is a meaningful tradition symbolizing the transition from one phase of life to another, marked by growth, achievement, and new beginnings.

To preserve the solemnity of this milestone event, please know that disruptions will not be permitted during the ceremony. This includes unruly behavior, excessive noise, or any actions that detract from the respect deserving of this celebration. And, to ensure everyone enjoys the event and is able to see their loved one graduate, we will not permit signs, banners, flags or posters inside the arena.

We ask you to approach this ceremony with decorum and mindfulness, understanding that each person's conduct contributes to the overall atmosphere and experience for all in attendance.

Thank you in advance for making this an outstanding event for Florida Poly and most importantly, our graduates.
