The University of Idaho has put in place several precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our Vandal Family. Attendees must wear a face covering and pass through a thermal scanner before entering the dome. Social distancing will be enforced. Graduates and guests will exit by row immediately following each ceremony to facilitate social distancing and cleaning of the dome.
Clear Bag Policy
The University of Idaho has implemented a clear bag policy for all events in the Kibbie Dome and on the Moscow campus with 500+ attendance. This policy is intended to improve and maintain public safety and event security and to improve bag check efficiency at events.
Regalia for the August ceremony is available for order until Thursday, June 18, through Jostens. Additional regalia will be available after June 18 through the Office of Alumni Relations.

Virtual Designer Presentations for "You Can't Take It With You"
If you missed our behind-the-scenes look at how a production is created, you can still watch a video recording of the virtual presentation by the designers of "You Can't Take It With You." Director Craig A. Miller and his artistic team had been working together since January to create the look and feel of this award-winning comedy. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit and all meetings and rehearsals ceased. On April 9, Craig and company showcased their designs, from scenic to costumes, sound, lights and more.
