Packets containing general information and Senior Gifts should be picked up at the Registration Center in the Pub in the Pannill Center during registration Friday and Saturday.
Parking and Shuttle Service
You may park in any lot on campus. Shuttle vans will circle
campus on Saturday and Sunday for your convenience (look for signs designating
shuttle stops). Remember that our hills are steep and there are lots of
steps — so bring your comfortable shoes!
Mary Baldwin’s beautiful hilltop campus can be a challenge to navigate.
We can help get you around — if you need special assistance, just
let us know when you complete the registration form.
For specific information about when and where class pictures will be taken, check the weekend schedule.
Photographing Your Graduate
We have made arrangements for a professional
photographer to capture the moment each student receives her/his
diploma during the Commencement ceremony. About one week after
Commencement, Chappell Studios will mail photo proofs to you.
You may elect to order photos and pay Chappell Studios according
to their instruction at that time. Information about this option
is included in your registration packets.
will be a designated area on Page Terrace for those who wish
to take a photograph. The available area is quite small and
accommodates only one person at a time. Please be mindful of
others who are also waiting to take a photograph: Take your
shot and move aside quickly. It is important not to disturb
What to Expect
Your safety and comfort matter to us! The two-hour Commencement
ceremony will be on the Barbara Kares Page Terrace, in
front of Martha S. Grafton Library. Seating will be on
the hillside; please bring something to sit on (blankets are good for the
slope, and lawn chairs are helpful on the limited level areas). Sunscreen,
a broadbrimmed hat, and water are recommended. PLEASE NOTE: In case of
inclement weather, the change of location
and time will be announced on the MBC website and on local television
and radio stations.
After April 30, confirmed reservations and payments are nonrefundable.
A very limited amount of special-needs seating is available
for those with severe health or mobility problems. Please
use the registration form to request the number of special-needs
seats your group will require. If special seating is available, you will
be issued a special-needs seating pass for the person designated and one
person to assist (not for the whole family). If you need wheelchair space,
please request it on the registration form and we will be happy to accommodate
you. These passes should be picked up at registration.
