Staff Ushers at Commencement


Your assistance is very much appreciated during this special day in the lives of many of our Texas State students. As a staff usher, you will be stationed at one of the entrances to the University Events Center and will greet candidates, faculty and guests, and distribute programs. You will also direct guests to the restrooms, stroller check-in, concession stands, and lost & found if necessary.

Ushers will be provided with a Texas State staff usher t-shirt; sizes and quantites are limited. When you register for a commencement ceremony, please indicate what size you need, or, let us know you already have a t-shirt.

Khaki or black pants/slacks are suitable. Shoes should be comfortable.

Reserved parking near the University Events Center is available if you make reservations by TBA. Please contact Melissa Rector to make those arrangements. Melissa can be reached at However, walking to the University Events Center will likely be the quickest way to get to the University Events Center.

All ushers: please meet the usher supervisor at entrance 1 in the University Events Center concourse at the beginning of your shift.
