CLEMSON, S.C. -

When you head to Clemson University's Commencement Friday at Littlejohn Coliseum, make sure you leave any backpacks and large bags at home. 

Security measures adopted after 9/11 and most recently, the Boston Marathon bombings, prohibit backpacks and large bags at graduation ceremonies.

According to a press release from Clemson University, items allowed but subject to search are purses, diaper bags, seat cushions, binoculars, cameras, video cameras, cell phones, radios, Walkman-type radio/recorders and hand-held TVs. Event staff can check umbrellas and strollers at the gates.

You will need an official form of photo identification to get in. Also, your children should remain with you at all times.

Clemson will hold three ceremonies for its spring commencement Friday. Graduates in the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities and the College of Business and Behavioral Science will receive degrees at 9:30 a.m. A second ceremony will begin at 2:30 p.m. for graduates in the colleges of Agricultural Forestry and Life Science; and Health, Education and Human Development. Alumna and "Entertainment Tonight" host Nancy O'Dell will be honored during the 2:30 p.m. ceremony. The third ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. for students in the College of Engineering and Science.
