On behalf of the graduates, the College respectfully requests those in attendance to refrain from outbursts of applause and cheer as a graduate’s name is called. We will provide an opportunity for celebration after all graduates have walked across the stage.
Photography – Due to safety concerns, the University will not allow guests in the aisle or the floor area for photographs. Guests may walk around the top of each side of the concourse to take photos. A professional photographer is hired by the University to take a photo of every student as they receive their degree, which will be available for purchase.
