Earn Your Sheepskin 

Grab your camera and be prepared to hunt for a parking space—Boise State winter commencement will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday.

While smaller than spring commencement, nearly 1,300 students will earn their degrees or certificates this week. Of those, 600 are expected to participate in the graduation ceremony at Taco Bell Arena. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. A reception for graduates and their families will follow the ceremony.

Between the processional and the recessional, graduate Brian Honan will serve as the student speaker. A former U.S. Marine, Honan was a National Science Foundation scholar for two years and earned an internship at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Parking during commencement is free, but because handicapped parking is limited, those who need extra help can be dropped off at entrances one and two, where volunteers will be waiting to assist them with elevators. Drivers in the area should be aware of some extra traffic congestion, although Thursday is the last day of classes before the Christmas holiday.

The ceremony will also be broadcast live on the internet at BoiseState.edu/provost/commencement<
