Protocol for Entering the Prison
Before entering Woodbourne, all guests will pass through a security checkpoint similar to that at any airport - you must present a valid photo ID. All electronic devices, including cell phones, smart watches, and cameras, are strictly prohibited. Please minimize what you bring inside - handbags, briefcases, and accessories should be left in the car. Dress is business casual and the ceremony will be outside. Guests are asked to arrive by 10:00 a.m. to allow time for security processing. Lunch will follow the ceremony and will conclude by 3:00 p.m. Guests who do not wish to join us for lunch may leave the facility at 1:00 p.m.
BPI student, Michael Cleland, who was recently released from prison, received his BA degree with his fellow Bard graduates. BPI alumni and their families joined in the celebration.
