Princeton's 260th Commencement ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. today in front of Nassau Hall as originally scheduled, as severe weather is not expected.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on TigerNet Channel 7 on campus and on Channel 27 on Princeton cable television. It also will be webcast live and will be archived for later viewing at the same site.

Further details about Commencement, including parking instructions for members of the University community and guests, are available online.
