[EVENT RECAP] Graduation Day Across the States – 2017 Commencement Stages

“We don’t stop going to school when we graduate.” —Carol Burnett

Graduation is a big stepping stone for students and the milestone that launches them into their futures. We’re always extremely proud of the work we do each year during commencement season because of how important these moments are for so many students, teachers, parents, and families around the country. Our goal is to provide the platform where lifelong memories are born, and commencements are some of those wonderful celebrations that are reminisced on time and time again.

This year, Mountain Productions staged multiple commencement events for institutions including Rutgers University, Wake Forest University, University of Pennsylvania, and more. While the stage systems varied from massive multi-platform truss stages to elegant canopies over adorned decking, one thing remained the same: the quality and safety of Mountain Productions’ structures.

Many aspects of collegiate staging differ from providing equipment for entertainment events, such as crew dynamics, system requirements, event location, and security. The Mountain team is backed by years of experience working in the collegiate industry and solving the unique challenges of graduation event production. With another year season behind us, we extend our congratulations to all of the 2017 graduates and the hard-working groups behind these unforgettable events.
