Directions to the Ceremony

Please plan to arrive early, as traffic is expected to be heavy.

Spring Convocation will be held at Georgia State University’s Sports Arena (125 Decatur St. S.E., Atlanta). Due to construction projects happening near the Sports Arena – specifically, the Courtland Street Bridge removal project – please plan for ample time to arrive in order to be on time.

There are a few different transportation options you may use to get to and from the ceremony:

Driving Directions

We recommend that guests who are driving to the ceremony park in Georgia State’s N, K and S Decks.
