Ceremonies were moved to Cajun Field after LPSS learned that the ceremonies scheduled to take place at the Cajundome had not been approved by the state.

Read more about that, here.

The decision for ceremonies at Cajun Field was made at a special board meeting on Tuesday.

LPSS says the same security measures such as wearing masks and keeping socially distant will remain in effect. After you sit, you will be able to take off your mask, but if you get up, the mask must go back on.

No concessions will be sold, but water will be available for purchase.

Guests will be escorted to seats (first come, first serve) using two separate entrances; graduates will have their own entrance.
