DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire will celebrate its 137th Commencement Saturday, May 19, 2007. Because the speakers are former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, university officials expect an increase in attendance and heavy traffic in the area between 6:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The general public will not have access to Cowell Stadium and the Whittemore Center (simulcast location) until 8:45 a.m. A bracelet system is in place to allow family and friends of the graduates priority access. Guests without a bracelet are encouraged to congregate at the Wildcat sculpture on Main Street in front of the Whittemore Center for coffee until 8:45 a.m. Those attending are encouraged to tune in to radio stations WTSN 1270 AM or WBYY 98.7 FM for traffic and parking updates.
The ceremony will be broadcast live on New Hampshire Public Television and live streamed on www.nhptv.org and www.unh.edu. NHPTV can be seen on Channel 11 Durham, 15 Hanover, 18 Pittsburg, 49 Littleton, 52 Keene and digital channels 57 Durham, 48 Littleton, 49 Keene.
