USF was determined to unveil the revamped Sun Dome before graduation this weekend.

Workers have been on the job seven days a week to meet their deadlines on the $35 million project that began last year.

And at 4 p.m. today, officials plan to cut the ribbon at USF Sun Dome Gate A, on the southwest side of the Dome.

The new and improved arena will be subject to a big test this weekend, when 3,500 graduates and their families troop through.

More than 6,000 undergraduates, masters and doctoral students are being granted diplomas this weekend throughout the USF System, in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota-Manatee and Lakeland.
