From the University of Nevada:

The University of Nevada, Reno will again conduct two undergraduate ceremonies for Spring 2014 Commencement on the historic Quadrangle, located on the southern part of campus.
 
The first undergraduate ceremony will be Friday, May 16 for graduates of the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources, College of Business, College of Education, College of Engineering and Division of Health Sciences.
 
The second undergraduate ceremony will be Saturday, May 17 for graduates of the Reynolds School of Journalism, College of Liberal Arts and College of Science.
 
Both undergraduate ceremonies will have the same format: line-up for each will be at 8 a.m. with the processional starting at 8:15 a.m. Students receiving dual degrees are welcome to attend both baccalaureate ceremonies.
 
The University introduced the additional undergraduate Commencement ceremony last spring primarily due to dramatically larger crowds resulting from increased enrollment and improving graduation rates.
 
"Commencement ceremonies are meaningful milestones in the lives of our students and their families and friends," Melisa Choroszy, associate vice president of enrollment services, said. "We thank the community for continued support of these important events, which celebrate student success and exemplify the commitment of the University's faculty and staff as well."
 
The advanced-degree ceremony, for master's and doctoral degrees awarded by all colleges, will be Friday, May 16, with line-up at 4:45 p.m.
 
Public parking is available in the West Stadium Parking Complex.
