El Paso, TX (KVIA)—The Class of 2024 will participate in commencement ceremonies May 23-25 at the Pan American Center, 1810 E. University Avenue, on the campus of New Mexico State University. This is the first time since 2019 that all six Las Cruces Public Schools high schools have hosted graduations at the Pan Am.  

Attendees will be required to follow NMSU's clear bag policy, which means no bags that do not align with the policy will be allowed inside the venue. Approved bags include clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC and do not exceed 12 inches wide by six inches deep and 12 inches high. Small clutch bags and soft, flexible seat cushions are allowed. 

Confetti, noisemakers, large posters, "fat head" photos that might impede others' views, and balloons are prohibited.
