Seating begins at 12:30 pm, and is available every 30 minutes until 2:00 pm.


Where should we park?

One of the benefits of booking your reception through us is that you don’t have to worry about the hassle of parking or sitting in post-Commencement traffic! To find more information about Commencement parking, please click here.

Can different families combine to host a private reception?

Yes, families are more than welcome to combine to host a private reception. If two or more families want to host a private reception please be sure to just submit one request. We can also split the charges so that each family only pays for the number in their party.

How much can we customize the dining and decor options?

Please contact Jordan Hajacos to discuss the dining and decor options. All changes to the dining or decor may result in additional charges, but they are all welcome. Unfortunately changes are not possible with the Commodore Ballroom Buffet Lunch.

Can we sit with other families that are attending the Commodore Ballroom Buffet Lunch?

Yes. Please be sure to specify in your order that you want to sit with a specific family and we will make sure you are seated together.

Should we arrive earlier than our seating time for the Commodore Ballroom Buffet Lunch?

It is encouraged that you show up approximately 15 minutes before your seating time. Our goal is to have you seated at your table at your seating time.
