LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Ivy Tech Lafayette is changing its date for 2020 commencement.
It is doing this to make sure it does not interfere with any activities on Purdue's campus.
The new date is Saturday, December 12th at 2 p.m.
Loeb Playhouse inside the Stewart Center will be hosting the commencement. The original date was May 10th.
Tom McCool is Ivy Tech Lafayette's Communications Director.
He said the college does not limit the amount of people who can attend commencement.
That's great news for families since Loeb Playhouse seats more than 1,000 people.
"We just thought it was really important that our students get the opportunity to celebrate that achievement with their families," said McCool. "If you have ever been to an Ivy Tech ceremony it is a family event."
The commencement is traditionally held in the Elliott Hall of Music on Purdue's campus.
