University to increase security measures for Commencement

first_imgThe Office of the Registrar sent an email to students Tuesday morning regarding increased security measures for the University’s 171st Commencement ceremony due to the presence of Vice President Joe Biden and former Speaker of the House John Boehner, who will be jointly receiving the Laetare Medal during the ceremony.“For security reasons, students participating in the University Commencement ceremony in the stadium should plan to arrive at the north entrance to the Hesburgh Library beginning at 7:15 a.m.,” the email stated. “Every student must be processed through airport-style security checkpoints by the U.S. Secret Service. After being cleared, students will proceed out the Hesburgh Library south exit and will line up in a secure area on the library quad.”Processing students through security is a “meticulous and time-intensive process” the email said.“Late-arriving students could encounter long lines and may not clear the checkpoints in time for the start of the ceremony,” the email said. “During the 2001 and 2009 presidential commencement visits, some students underestimated the time it would take and were not inside the facility when the ceremony began.” Tags: Biden, Boehner, Commencement 2016, Laetare Medallast_img read more

first_imgDraymond Green on the ejection: “I disagreed with the call and I’ll never let a grown man tell me not to talk.”— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) November 12, 2019It’s Green’s “If you feel like you got the call wrong — or right — don’t tell me not to talk,” Green said post game. “I’m a grown man. I got my own kids. So that’s what happened.” In 22 minutes played, Green had four points on 2-of-7 shooting from the floor, as the Warriors fell to 2-9 on the season. Welcome back, Draymond Green.The Warriors forward has never been one to shy away from controversies on the court, and on Monday night, it was no different: In Green’s first game back since injuring his left index finger, he was handed his eighth career ejection and the first of 2019. In the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ 122-108 loss to the Jazz, Utah’s Mike Conley barreled over Green, and Green took issue with the foul call — he was charged with two technical fouls and an early shower.NBA MOCK DRAFT 2020:Knicks pick star guard at No. 1; LaMelo Ball lands with HawksAndddd Draymond Green just got ejected. pic.twitter.com/LuLR8l3YeU— Dime (@DimeUPROXX) November 12, 2019 Green couldn’t peel himself away from arguing with the referee who made the call, and it proved for naught, as he was sent to the locker room with just over eight minutes left in the game.There was some question on the foul, and it appears as though Green reached for the ball initially before Conley ran him over. Following the game, Green “expounded” on the call.last_img read more
