The Office of Student Services is looking for flag carriers in the upcoming Spring Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 17th. All graduating students’ countries of citizenship will be represented in a colorful procession of flags that celebrates the diversity of our student body.
Continuing students, staff and friends/family: this is a great opportunity to cheer on our graduates! Volunteer flag carriers will have reserved seating at the commencement ceremony. Please note: graduating students are NOT eligible to carry a flag as they are already accounted for otherwise in the Commencement procession.
There are 36 flags in the procession, available on a first-come, first-served basis. If your first choice is not available, please be willing to carry another flag. To view availability and sign-up to volunteer, visit go.miis.edu/flag.
Volunteers will be required to attend a 1-hour rehearsal the morning of Commencement—the exact time will be confirmed closer to the date. More details on the process, rehearsal, etc. will be sent to all volunteers in early May.
Thank you, we look forward to your participation!
