There are several ways to make your visit to the Keller Auditorium go smoothly. One of those is to be mindful of the bag policy.

It will be much easier to gain entry with small clutches up to 4.5” x 6.5” in size. Similarly, clear bags will clear security faster than opaque ones. Larger bags may require a thorough inspection — and may not be allowed entry at all. No matter the size, all bags will be searched.
