Special note:

Please do not bring to the ceremonies any objects that contain latex.

At least one of our current Drake students has a latex allergy.  Exposure to certain forms may be life threatening.  Therefore, we ask that you do not bring latex objects, such as latex balloons, to any of the commencement ceremonies.

If you have latex items that are medically related and need to be used at any of the ceremonies, please contact the Student Records Office at 515-271-2025.

We appreciate your cooperation.
