On Friday afternoon, members of Marymount University’s graduating class will celebrate their accomplishments through a Graduation Parade, with faculty and staff cheering them on along a four-mile route that loops between Main Campus and the Ballston Center.
Graduates are encouraged to bring posters with them for the procession and decorate their vehicles. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, participants are required to stay in their vehicles for the duration of the program.
The parade, which will take place rain or shine, is scheduled to begin at 1 pm at the intersection of Yorktown Blvd. and N Brandywine St. in Arlington, Va., near Marymount’s Main Campus. Participants will start to line up their vehicles at this location at 12:30 pm. Once the procession begins, participants will travel south on N Glebe Rd. to the Ballston Center before looping back north to conclude the celebration at the Main House on campus.

If you wish to interview any graduates, faculty or staff members, please maintain a six-feet distance and wear a face mask/covering.
The Graduation Parade coincides with Marymount’s 2020 Commencement Weekend, with the graduating class set to participate in virtual commencement ceremonies on Sunday.
