Please take into account the heavy event traffic and plan your arrival time accordingly. A restaurant and coffee shop with limited seating will be open in the main lobby before the ceremony begins. Food and beverages, however, are prohibited in both the ceremony area (Field 1) and the student marshaling area (Field 3). Shoes with spike heels are prohibited in the student marshaling area as they can damage the field turf.
