CFA Commencement Cruise
7 p.m. Thursday, May 13

College of Fine Arts faculty, staff and graduating seniors (fall 2020 and spring 2021) are invited to cruise around campus, and the rest of our community is invited to park and watch.

Registration is required for those who plan to drive or ride in the Commencement Cruise.

Parking & Route Details

We will gather in our vehicles in Lots 16N and 16S, just west of Duerksen Fine Arts Center. Vehicles will use the north entrance to Lot 16N (at Perimeter Road & Alumni Drive) to enter the staging area.

Staging will begin at 7 p.m. and the vehicle procession will start at 7:30 p.m. from the southeast exit of Lot 16S onto Memorial Drive, turning left onto WuShock Drive. The Wichita State University Police will lead the procession to set the pace and ensure safety. We’ll make two complete loops around campus and re-enter the staging area the same way we exited, by taking Memorial Drive to Lot 16S.

After processing around campus, participants are invited to park and grab a treat and a T-shirt in the Duerksen Ampitheatre area.

Need help making your vehicle stand out? You have a couple options this year:

The ShiftSpace Student Group will have simple decorations available, thanks to the CFA Dean’s Office, which is purchasing supplies. Decorations will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Of course, you’re encouraged to go big, if that appeals!
