|Posted Date||Event||Event Date||Change|

|14 May 14||Bluebards Musical||22-25 May 14||Don't miss the opportunity to pre-purchase tickets for one of our Bluebards performances during Grad Week! You can now purchase tickets through Academy Concerts located in Arnold Hall. Tickets may be purchased in person or by phone at (719) 333-4497, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Credit cards (Master Card and Visa) are accepted. Graduating cadets attend at no charge but must pick up tickets from Academy Concerts. You may also purchase tickets at the door the day of the performance (cash only).|
|8 May 14||Grad Ceremony tickets||28 May 14||Graduation Ceremony tickets will be distributed to graduating cadets beginning 9 May. Each cadet will receive as many tickets as he/she requests for their guests. We strongly recommend guests wait till they arrive before getting their tickets as lost/misplaced tickets cannot be replaced. The cadets will also receive up to 4 free tickets to attend the Superintendent's Family Reception on Sunday before Grad. Make sure you get in touch with your cadet if you are interested in attending the reception.
A limited number of Graduation Ceremony tickets will be available to the public through the Colorado Springs and Tri-Lakes Chambers of Commerce and the USAFA Athletic Ticket Office beginning 16 May. Tickets must be picked up in person with a maximum of four tickets each on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets cannot be mailed and there is no will-call at the stadium.
Handicapped seating in the stadium is not ticketed or reserved, although guests must have a ticket in order to enter the stadium. Wheelchair seating is located at the top of the following sections: U2, U5, U9, U12, M2, M6, M10, M14, L3, L6, L7, L9, L10 and L13. The entire top row of the L sections (L-2 through L-14) is reserved for handicapped guests and is first-come, first-served. Guests are advised to arrive early for this seating.
In the event of severe, life-threatening weather or security response to a high-threat world situation, the ceremony could be moved into Clune Arena at the Cadet Field House. Because Clune has limited seating capacity, guests of graduating cadets would be restricted to three per cadet. For this reason, we make every attempt to hold the graduation ceremony outdoors in Falcon Stadium, even in less than ideal weather conditions.
