With graduation coming up this Saturday (12/14), Midwestern State University has extended its ‘clear bag’ policy.

The policy was first introduced at Mustangs football games at Memorial Stadium this season to help improve security. The policy states that only clear bags and small clutch purses are allowed into the event. No medium or large non-clear purses, backpacks or camera bags will be allowed.

The policy has now been extended to graduation ceremonies and basketball games at D.L. Ligon Coliseum starting on December 19.

In addition to improved security, the university hopes the policy will speed up entry into events.
