Graduation Security Plan
Clemson reminds all guests coming to the Commencement Ceremonies that backpacks are not allowed inside Littlejohn Coliseum. Security measures adopted post-9/11 and most recently, the Boston Marathon bombings, exclude backpacks and any large bags from the list of items allowed.
Guests attempting to enter the coliseum with backpacks, tote bags, brown paper bags or other large carryalls will be told to return the item to their vehicle. These items will not be claim-checked at the gates.
Items allowed into the coliseum, but subject to search are purses, diaper bags, seat cushions, binoculars, cameras, video cameras, cell phones, radios, Walkman-type radio/recorders and hand-held TVs. Event staff can check umbrellas and strollers at the gates.
Adults attending Commencement should have an official form of photo identification with them, and children should remain with an adult at all times during the event.
