A map from Texas A&M University shows the fastest routes for attendees of graduation ceremonies Friday and Saturday at Reed Arena. There will be a $5 cash-only parking fee.

Reed Arena will not be enforcing its clear bag policy that is used for Texas A&M sporting events; however, every bag will be checked at entry. There are no outside food and beverages allowed with the exception of one sealed plastic water bottle per guest. Concessions will be open where guests can purchase water and “light snacks” with a card. Only cards will be accepted at the concession stands.

An email from the Bryan school district includes a reminder that the intersection of Wellborn Road and Holleman Drive will be closed due to construction. It states there is also a possibility that George Bush Drive could be down to one lane in each direction at Harvey Mitchell Parkway/F.M. 2818.

Detours are in place, but the email recommends people plan to arrive early.

According to the email, the following items are not allowed inside the arena: artificial noisemakers, balloons, air horns, glass vases, signs and posters, outside food and beverages, firearms and weapons, tobacco products of any kind, skateboards and scooters, tripods, pets, professional cameras, video cameras or reusable cups or bottles.

Strollers must be parked on the concourse of Reed Arena, not in handicap areas of the facility. While pets are not allowed in the arena, service animals may enter. Flowers will be allowed in, as long as they are not in a glass vase.
