Wave Good-bye party

Wave Goodbye is an annual party given by the President that is modeled after New Orleans' many springtime festivals. Graduates from all schools and their guests are invited to mingle on Gibson Quad on the uptown campus on Friday, May 15, 2020 from 6-8 p.m.

The event will feature local music and multiple booths will serve a variety of New Orleans food in small plates, including gumbo, crawfish pie, mini muffalettas and chargrilled oysters as well as snacks and various desserts. Wine and beer will be available for purchase.

Graduates are allotted seven tickets each, one of which the graduate will need to use to enter the party. Children 10 years and younger do not need tickets. Tickets are available for download from this website in the weeks before the event.

Faculty members participating in commencement exercises are allotted two tickets each. Participating faculty can request tickets via this website in the weeks before the event.
