This year, the USF Sun Dome will again implement enhanced security measures that apply to our high school graduations. Following is safety information that needs to be shared with graduates and their families.

  • Sun Dome staff will use hand-held metal detector wands on all guests prior to entrance into the facility.
  • All purses and bags will be searched.
  • No backpacks will be permitted in the Sun Dome.
  • If guests want to bring cameras or binoculars, they may not be in cases; cases should be left in vehicles.

These safety precautions are new Sun Dome requirements designed to enhance the security of our graduates, their families, and school personnel. It is important that we educate our graduates and their families about these security measures so that they know to allow extra time for security procedures and can be in their seats prior to commencement ceremonies.
