Family and Friends

Given the solemn yet celebratory nature of commencement, all participants are expected to follow some basic rules of etiquette for such occasions.



The university has arranged for professional photographs to be taken during the commencement ceremonies as each graduate receives their handshake with the University President by Grad Images (a division of Chappell Studios).

To assure that all graduates, their families, and friends may enjoy and view the ceremony, we ask that guests are considerate of one another when taking photographs.
