The University Ceremony in Lane Stadium will proceed even if it is raining. It will be delayed or cancelled only if there are dangerous or severe conditions, such as lightning or hail. For this reason, if rain is forecast, we recommend bringing raingear. Umbrellas are permitted in Lane Stadium for the commencement.
If dangerous or severe conditions exist, the University Ceremony in Lane Stadium may be delayed or cancelled. Once the decision has been made, details will be posted on the Virginia Tech homepage, the Virginia Tech News homepage, and Virginia Tech Mobile. In addition, a broadcast e-mail will be sent to all students, faculty, and staff; a recorded message will be placed on the University Weather Line (540-231-6668); and information will be shared with other local media outlets. The announcement will also be posted to the VT News page on Twitter and the Virginia Tech page on Facebook. The university may use VT Alerts depending on conditions.
