More than 1,262 undergraduate and graduate students received diplomas during the 9 a.m. ceremony at the United Spirit Arena, 1701 Indiana Ave. in Lubbock.

Owing to the highway construction around the university, parents and guests of the graduates should leave early when going to the United Spirit Arena. There should be no difficulty arriving from the south at 19th Street and Indiana Avenue. Those arriving from the north should use Texas Tech Parkway, west of Indiana on Fourth Street, and follow the parkway to the United Spirit Arena. There is no access south on Indiana Avenue from the Brownfield Highway. Illuminated signs placed on Fourth Street will direct visitors and graduates to the parkway.
