Thomas University’s commencement moved indoors

Staff report

THOMASVILLE — Due to the forecast of rain for the next few days and its effect on set-up procedures, Thomas University’s annual Commencement ceremony set for 8:30 a.m. Saturday will be moved into the TU Gymnasium, located on TU’s West Campus at 1550 Magnolia St., Thomasville.


More than 290 students will receive associate, bachelor’s or master’s degrees during the ceremony. Major General (Retired) Bernard “Burn” Loeffke will serve as the speaker.


Graduates are required to line up by 7:30 a.m. Saturday. Because paved parking at West Campus is limited, graduates, and any family members traveling with them, are asked to part at the Main Campus and take a shuttle to West Campus. Shuttles will begin operating at 6:45 a.m.
