Other than during the processional, please do not use flash photography. The processional will take place down the center aisle. Please stay behind the rope boundaries.

Photos at Commencement

  1. Graduates will march down the left and right center aisles.Ā  Check the seating chart board at the back of Maxwell Commons for your graduate’s marching side L or R.
  2. For pictures of your graduate actually receiving his/her diploma, please rely on the professional photographers. Other photographers are not allowed close to the stage or inside the rope boundaries.
  3. On the left side as you face the stage, the ropes will be close to where your graduate will come down the steps after receiving the diploma.
  4. Following the ceremony, graduates are requested to go directly to the Academic Department signs on the lawn area west of the ceremony area. Each graduate is to assemble under the sign according to his or her home department. Please meet at these locations for photos.
