Before the Ceremony

 

Located at 2000 Gene Autry Way, Anaheim, CA 92806, Angel Stadium provides a unique and exciting experience to celebrate our graduates’ accomplishments. The campus leverages the entire stadium environment to create tailored and individualized experiences for our graduates and their families. We are thrilled to expand upon last year's successful Beach takeover of the Stadium and extend a warm welcome to the Class of 2024 as they join the CSULB Alumni community.

Angel Stadium offers a versatile venue that can accommodate our increasing number of graduates and provide ample seating for their guests. By utilizing the stadium, we ensure an engaging and memorable experience for our graduates while accommodating the growth in both graduate and guest capacity.

Students will check in and pick up their MarchingOrder Grad Pass at Tunnel A, line up in the tunnel with their departments, then process into the stadium and into their seats for the program.

To ensure a memorable and inclusive experience for our graduating class and their guests, the university leverages the entire stadium facility. This allows us to create a family-oriented environment that preserves the significance and celebration of this momentous day.

It is important to note that ticketed individuals are required to occupy their assigned seats, as seat changes are not possible after the ticket checkout process is completed. Each guest ticket grants entry to the stadium for one person only, and once a ticket is scanned at a gate, it becomes void. We kindly remind you that all guests, including children aged 3 and above, must have a ticket for entry.

Ceremonies will take place in all conditions. Consider weather conditions, such as sun exposure, heat, and rain. Take appropriate precautions related to weather protection.

Attire should be appropriate for walking and sitting outdoors for two hours as well as climbing stairs and/or ramps within the stadium.

For Grads: Graduates are expected to arrive in traditional regalia, available to order from the Bookstore, and are welcome to decorate their mortar board caps.  In addition to climbing stairs, a portion of the procession will take place on a paved steep incline and also along a dirt track. Please plan your attire (under regalia) and footwear accordingly.

Flower sales and preorder pickup will be available on site. Share in this commencement tradition and preorder your orchid leis and grad bouquets to pick up at the stadium the day of your ceremony. * Pre-order link HERE.

Additionally, the Beach Shops will also be located throughout the stadium parking lot as well as inside the stadium, open before, during, and after the ceremonies. Get your Beach gear and grad gifts at the stadium or online!
