Monday, May 22, 2023
The Indiana Academy commencement ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 27th, 2023, starting at 11:30 a.m., in the Emens Auditorium on the campus of Ball State University. Our commencement speaker this year will be Emery Jordon, Class of 1997. A native of Gary, Mr. Jordan is is an award-winning leader, trainer, Project Manager, and author of three books.
Please note there will be some construction on campus, so plan ahead and allow for an early arrival. Parking for the Commencement Ceremony is available in the McKinley parking garage (south of Emens Auditorium), the New York Avenue parking garage (northeast of Emens Auditorium and Puris Hall), or the Student Center parking garage (south of Pittenger Student Center.) You can also refer to the campus map for building and parking locations.
The graduation events of the Indiana Academy are joyous but formal celebrations. Please do not bring air horns, cowbells, or other “noise” generating materials. Also, flash photography is a distraction to those seated nearby and a disturbance to the speaker. As a courtesy to all commencement ceremony participants, individuals who wish to videotape or take flash photographs may do so only from the balcony of Emens Auditorium.
Crabtree Photography will be taking handshake photographs as graduate receives their diploma, a poised picture with the diploma. They will be taking the senior group photo in front of Beneficence. Graduation pictures can be ordered at crabtree-photography.hhimagehost.com/IA. Pictures will then be mailed directly from Crabtree Photography to the home address.
We believe the 2023 graduation ceremony will be a memorable and joyous occasion, and you are free to attend with as many family and friends as you would like as seating for the graduation ceremony on Saturday is unlimited. If you are unable to join us in -person, the ceremony will be live-streamed at this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRAMfc6x54Y.
