Sunday, June 3—South Lawn of Old Main, 10:00 a.m.

Commencement 2018 is on Sunday, June 3. Families are encouraged to book their accommodations early, since nearby hotels fill up fast. Bookmark this page for the latest information, as events are subject to change.

In early January, potential graduates received information about Commencement planning—including how to order their cap & gown, where they need to check in before finalizing graduation plans, and who to contact for questions. Be sure to read those materials thoroughly and follow the instructions.

*Please note that travel directions to campus on the day of Commencement will be altered due to detours on Main and Seminary Streets in Galesburg, as well as US-34.

Detours in and around Galesburg:

Guests arriving from I-74 are encouraged to take the Main Street exit. Go east on Main Street to Allens Road (just before the construction zone). Turn turn south (left) on Allens, then west (right) on South Street. (Note: Drivers who take US-34 will face a detour or delay because of construction on US-34 and the RunGalesburgRun half-marathon on Seminary Street.)

Guests driving from the west on US-34 will need to detour by taking IL-164 in Monmouth, which becomes Main Street in Galesburg. Then turn south (right) on Cherry Street.

Parking is available in all campus lots and in the Knox County Courthouse lot at the corner of Cherry & South Streets.
