Hi Harry,

When I graduated I practiced first a few days before so I would have
an idea of how the route was  set up and then I could do it on my own.
However, I had a small graduation for just my small college, so that
may not work if you're in a general university graduation. Maybe talk
to the registrar and see if you can practice beforehand. You can also
try asking someone you know who is graduating to be your guide.

Amusingly, at our graduation the people working were nervous because I
guess the lighting near the steps to go off the stage wasn't very
good, and they were afraid people would fall off the stage! I think
overall I was at an advantage!
