A brief rehearsal will include a run-through of the ceremony, as well as give you up to the minute details about this important event.  You will receive a seating chart (so you will know where to sit and who should be seated next to you), and ensure the announcer has the correct pronunciation of your name.  It is a good idea to wear the shoes that you plan to wear to the actual ceremony.  You do not need to bring your cap and gown.
