Graduation will be hosted at Verizon arena on Sunday, May 22 at 3 p.m. The arena has implemented new regulations on what is and is not allowed inside. Walk-through metal detectors are now mandatory for entrance at every event. All bags, cell phones, cameras/recording devices and other metal objects must pass through security inspection. However, coins, watches, belts and jewelry may be left on your person. Bags larger than 14 inches by 14 inches by 6 inches are not permitted. Diaper bags will be permitted for parents with infants. Backpacks, computer bags, briefcases, presents including balloons and flowers, posters/signs, and air horns are also not permitted. Exceptions to these rules will be made for medical needs only.
