Friday, May 16, 2014 ▪ 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. ▪ Exhibition Hall, Norfolk Scope
We recently have been made aware of an event involving the public school system that occurs simultaneously and in the adjacent building — Chrysler Hall — to our mandatory commencement rehearsal on Friday, May 16, in Scope Arena. To avoid significant traffic delays, we are making the following changes to the schedule for that morning:
1) Rehearsal will begin at 9:30 a.m. to ease potential road congestion.
2) EVMS graduates will receive complimentary parking in the Scope underground parking garage off St. Paul’s Boulevard. Upon entry into the garage, identify yourself as an EVMS graduate and write “EVMS” on the back of your ticket to park free. EVMS graduates may not park in the surface lot across St. Paul's Boulevard from Scope, as it will be restricted to guests of the Chrysler Hall event.
Plan to arrive early for rehearsal to avoid long lines getting into the parking garage. Should you wish not to park at Scope, there is a city-owned garage on Charlotte Street, though there is an hourly fee for parking there. Alternatively, you can ride the Tide light-rail line to the Monticello Station. Doors to the Scope Exhibition Hall will open at 8:30 a.m. Rehearsal will start promptly at 9:30 a.m.
