First Drive-Thru Diploma Pick-Up Parade set for Saturday

OLLU will celebrate spring graduates with the first of three Drive-Thru Diploma Pick-Up Parades on Saturday from 9-11 a.m.

Graduates and their families are invited to participate at the San Antonio campus parade. Faculty, staff and students are invited to cheer on the graduates by lining the routes on campus. Social distancing rules must be adhered to strictly. For a map of the parade, click here.

At the end of the parade route in San Antonio, the Bookstore will be selling OLLU merchandise and the 2020 OLLU Fiesta medal. A tent will be set up by the Jersig Center. Proceeds from the medal will benefit the OLLU Student Emergency Fund. The cost is $10.

Graduates who wish to participate in the parade must complete this form. Once the form is complete, graduates will receive additional instructions for participation.


Other general details:

* Graduates and their families are asked to stay in their car and proceed through the parade route (see maps for specific campus).

* Spectators are asked to park in lots not on the parade route and proceed to the route on foot. Spectators must not approach graduates in cars and must maintain proper social distance with other spectators.

* University staff members will be along the route taking photos that will be posted on the OLLU Flickr account.

* Graduates participating in the parades may still participate in the commencement ceremony planned for fall.

* Graduates who do not wish to take part in a parade will have their diplomas mailed to them.
