Photography during Convocation

A professional photographer will take pictures of each graduate as they receive their diploma on stage. A color proof will be sent to each student at no charge, with no obligation to buy, and with full information on purchasing options.  We ask that you respect other patrons and the photographer and do not block pathways while taking pictures.
