May 2017 Commencement ceremony to be held indoors

The University of Indianapolis will hold its May 6, 2017 Commencement ceremony in Nicoson Hall due to inclement weather. The decision was made to move the event inside due to concerns about the saturated grounds at Key Stadium, and to ensure a safe and pleasant experience for attendees.
