TICKETS ARE NOT NEEDED to attend the Commencement ceremony. There is plenty of general seating for all guests. Seating is on a first-come first-served basis. However, we do ask that you exit the arena area immediately after the ceremony so that we may prepare the arena for the next ceremony.


No strollers will be allowed in the Bresnan Arena on the day of Commencement.

Strollers are a potential hazard and we need to allow for necessary room for wheelchairs. We will provide an area where you may park your stroller, however, Minnesota State Mankato is not liable should theft or damage occur. Thank You.

Handicapped and Special Needs Seating: there is limited handicapped/special needs seating at the top of the arena.  If you require wheelchair seating or special needs seating at the top of the arena (when you enter the arena, you are at the top of it and won't have to do stairs), please arrive at least 30-45 minutes early.
