It's graduation time again Graduation lists
Better get those leis early, as dozens of high schools and colleges begin holding commencement ceremonies today.
The biggest single event is tomorrow when about 2,400 University of Hawai'i-Mānoa graduates will receive diplomas in two ceremonies.
About 1,600 bachelor candidates are eligible to attend the undergraduate ceremony at 9 a.m. and nearly 800 graduate degree candidates will walk the line at 3 p.m.
Maya Soetoro-Ng, sister of President Obama and education specialist at the East-West Center, will be the commencement speaker for both ceremonies.
Doors to the Stan Sheriff Center will open at 8 a.m. for the undergraduate ceremony and at 2 p.m. for the advanced degree ceremony. Both events are free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Balloons and strollers are not allowed inside the arena.
Free parking will be available in the parking structure, which will open at 6 a.m. For more information, go to http://manoa.hawaii.edu/commencement.
