There will be several areas, such as the Agora Courtyard and the Doug Little Lounge, designed for picture taking by family and friends. Each area will be set up with flowers and/or seating. Please feel free to use the entire campus for photographs, as long as you do not disrupt the flow of any ceremony activities.
Each ceremony has its own Class Photo to distinguish between the two university Colleges (CASHS and CSAM). The CASHS photo shoot will take place in the morning after the ceremony is over. The CSAM afternoon photo shoot will take place prior to the student procession. Specific times will be identified in the coming schedule of events.
Clarke Action Photography will be taking a photo of each graduate as they cross the stage. We ask that each graduate pause briefly on their mark for the photo. Graduates will be emailed after Convocation with a unique code to access their secure photos online. Graduate will be responsible for sharing this code with family and friends for online purchases, if they so choose. All inquires about stage photos should be directed to email@example.com.
We encourage families and friends to take advantage of the professional photographer and reserve personal photography for the campus. However, there is a small photo pit for family and friends to take photos of their loved ones along the red carpet path. If guests utilize this photo opportunity they should be brief and return to their seat to avoid congestion and blocking view of other guests. No photography will be allowed in the NSC that is outside the photo pit area.
- Use the red carpet path to return to your seat even if you do not have anyone in the photo pit (manages 'traffic' flow).
- Move briskly through the photo pit area (eliminates congestion).
Note: You may be asked by a Student Marshal to pause while the next row of graduands make their way on the red carpet.

Students are encouraged to contact:
- The Administrative Assistant for their specific program to inquire about, or organize, a departmental photo
