HAMMOND – Motorists and visitors planning to attend Southeastern Louisiana University’s commencement ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 9 should anticipate heavy traffic and route changes affecting University Avenue (LA Hwy 3234) between Interstate 55 and North Cherry Street.  Students and their families should carpool and arrive as early as possible for the ceremony.

Local traffic will be allowed to proceed on University Avenue for as long as possible, but will be diverted through the campus and onto other nearby streets as congestion increases.

Prior to commencement, all available parking near the University Center is expected to be filled by 9 a.m. and additional traffic will be diverted to park on main campus via North General Pershing Street and SGA Drive.

Southeastern Lion Traxx shuttle buses and several golf carts will be in operation traveling throughout campus before and after the ceremony to accommodate anyone parking in outlying areas or needing special transportation assistance.

Additional parking spaces around the University Center will be set aside for vehicles with appropriate handicapped placards and special needs.

Southeastern students wishing to return rental textbooks on Saturday, Dec. 9 should wait until after 2 p.m. to do so.
