Shaw Smith 900 Room in the Alvarez College Union. In the event of inclement weather, the stream will be projected in the Duke Family Performance Hall as well.

In addition to the commencement ceremony, family and friends of students are welcome to attend a number of events held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, including Senior Soiree, department open houses and performances by the Davidson College Chorale featuring senior soloists and the Jazz Ensemble.
