You will be lining up by Economics classes and I will explain how this will work when you pick up your cap and gown.

We will go over this when you pick up your cap and gown.

If you have a friend who will not use all of their tickets, they can give you their tickets, but they must request all 5 tickets when they pick up their cap and gown and then they give their extras to you.
