Commencement PhotographsUMC Photo Icon
A professional photographer has been contracted to take individual photos of graduates before and during the May 2012 commencement ceremony. All graduates are encouraged to have an optional posed photograph taken in Sahlstrom Conference Center prior to the commencement ceremony in Lysaker Gymnasium. The photographer will also take a photo of each candidate as he or she receives the diploma folder from the Chancellor at the ceremony. A few weeks after the ceremony, a proof of these photos and an order form will be mailed to each graduate. At that time, you may order photos from the photographer.
