FARGO (KFGO AM) North Dakota State University expected there could be a scheduling conflict between Bison playoff football and the University's Winter Commencement this Friday. Associate Registrar Rhonda Kitch says that's why graduation was moved from the Fargodome to the Bison Sports Arena well in advance.
Kitch says the BSA was booked in April in anticipation of another great play-off run by the Bison. It's the third consecutive year the commencement ceremony has been moved to the BSA because of play-off action.
Graduation is at 4 PM Friday. NDSU faces New Hampshire three hours later in an FCS semifinal game at the Fargodome.
957 students will graduate friday, making it NDSU's largest Winter Commencement
Parking is expected to be a premium because of the events. You can find updates on parking and locations at www.ndsu.edu/commencement.
