Rain Plan Instructions for Commencement

In the event of inclement weather, the Commencement ceremony will be moved to the Broadmoor World Arena. You’ll receive information via CC’s emergency notification system after 6:15 a.m. An update also will be posted on the CC website, and local media, including KRCC 91.5 FM, will be notified. You may also inquire about potential location changes by calling (719) 389-6707.

  1. If the decision is made to move the Commencement ceremony to the Broadmoor World Arena, proceed directly to the Arena at 3185 Venetucci Blvd. Graduates need to time their departure to ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 7:30 A.M. – EARLIER IF POSSIBLE. CC buses will be available to transport any graduates who do not have transportation. Buses will load on the south side of Worner Campus Center at 7 a.m. The graduation procession is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.  Parking is free. Graduates are encouraged to ride the CC buses.
  2. Graduates, faculty, trustees, and cabinet members should enter the World Arena at the rear loading dock area through the “Press” entrance, which is just past Gate C. This is in the southeast area of the facility and adjoins the Ice Hall. Upon arrival, graduates will be given instructions from there.
  3. All family members and friends should enter the arena through Gates A or B, near the front box office. There are plenty of seats available and no tickets are required. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
  4. A reception will take place in Worner Campus Center following the ceremony.
