Construction at Ranger Field to affect commencement guests

Construction of a new press box at Ranger Field will affect guests attending Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s 115th spring commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 10, at 10:30 a.m.

The construction process will limit access to the west grandstand and some seating will be eliminated in order to provide a buffer zone around the construction site. Construction also will affect handicapped seating in the grandstand.

“The ongoing construction will present a few challenges for spectators, but we have worked to make sure that our guests have several different options for viewing the ceremony,” said Steve Valencia, associate vice president for university relations.

Access to the west grandstand will be available only at the northwest corner. Guests in wheelchairs will have spaces reserved on the west side of the stadium at field level, or may watch the ceremony from their vehicles at reserved parking spaces on the first tier of the south bowl.

Seating will be available at the east grandstand as well.

To accommodate the changes, the stage will be moved to the north side of the field, facing south.

Northwestern will have additional personnel available at the stadium to assist guests with seating.
