Commencement & Accessibility

Dear ANTS Community,

I want to remind you that this year Baccalaureate will be on May 19, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. at The Second Church in Newton (60 Highland Street). The Commencement Celebration will be on May 20 at First Baptist Church of Newton, 848 Beacon Street.

For those of you who may have guests who ambulate differently, to use Beth Hoffman's phrase, I want to insure you that both venues are accessible. A subset of the Commencement Committee made an onsite review of both venues in order to insure this. We want all guests to feel fully welcomed and able to participate. We will have specific information available about parking, ramped entrances, parking, elevators and so forth as we get closer to the dates. But be assured that we have taken this into consideration in our planning.

Let me know if you have any questions,


Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community
