Photography Information for Commencement

Photography during the Ceremonies:
It is important to us that family and friends have the opportunity to take photos of their significant graduate from the best possible location at the special moment of diploma receipt.

It is also important that we avoid disrupting the ambiance of the Commencement Ceremony, or obstructing the view of others in attendance. To that end, we request that persons taking photos use the designated area located near the front left side of the stage. We also ask that you linger in this area only long enough to take your special photo. Guests attending the Baccalaureate Ceremony are asked to refrain from taking photos during the ceremony.
