A rehearsal will be scheduled to review your role in the ceremony. There, you will receive a printed copy of Order and Form (stage script) as well as a copy of the Convocation program. Kevin Kiss will be in attendance and will explain your role to you. Staff will also be present to assist with the art of "hooding". If you have a speaking role, you may also try out the microphone.
