Stetson University College of Law is moving graduation ceremonies from the Gulfport campus to the Pasadena Community Church, 227 70th St. S., St. Petersburg, due to inclement weather. The commencement ceremony will begin Saturday, Dec. 18, at 2 p.m., instead of the originally scheduled graduation time of 1 p.m.

Each graduate has been provided with 10 guests tickets; graduates may freely trade extra tickets. We expect to be able to accommodate all guests. The doors open to ticketed guests at 1:00 p.m. and to non-ticketed guests at 1:45 p.m.

  • Directions to Pasadena Community Church: From Stetson Law in Gulfport, turn right on Gulfport Blvd. S. (22nd Ave. S.). Turn right onto Pasadena Ave. S. (first major intersection). Turn left at Park Circle S. and you will see the church.
