Wave Goodbye 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, 6-8 p.m.

The event will feature local music by Rockin' Dopsie Jr. & The Zydeco Twisters, and multiple booths will serve a variety of New Orleans food in small plates. Wine and beer will be available for purchase (cash only).

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 for graduates will be available through Gibson Online until 6 p.m. on Friday, May 15.

Faculty members participating in commencement exercises are allotted two tickets each. Participating faculty can request tickets via this website. See the "For Faculty" page of this site for more information.
