Clear Bag Policy

A clear bag policy will be in effect for the Moby Arena ceremonies this spring. Last year, Colorado State implemented a clear bag policy for all events at Moby Arena to enhance event security procedures, to provide a safer environment for the public, and to expedite patron entry into Moby Arena. This policy aligns itself with the safety trends of professional and collegiate arenas and stadiums nationwide. This new policy limits and restricts the sizes and types of bags that are permitted into Moby during events.

All points of entry will be included under the new policy. There are no provisions to check items at each entry. Instead, patrons will be asked to either take prohibited items back to their car, or dispose of prohibited items at their respective entrance.

At Colorado State University we want to ensure all guests have a positive, memorable and safe experience during the Spring 2018 Commencement Ceremonies. We look forward to celebrating your graduates’ special day.
