A professional photographer will be available to photograph graduates again this year. The photographer will take a posed photo of the graduate individually, and with family and friends, before the May 2014 commencement ceremony. All graduates are encouraged to have a posed photograph taken on Saturday, May 10, 2014 in Bede Ballroom A & B between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. It only takes a short time. The only thing they need is your name and mailing address to take your photo. There is NO obligation to order any photos.

About four days after the UMC Graduation Ceremony, you will be able to view and place your order online. Simply go to their website: Click on "View your photos" and then click on your event link. Any graduate, parent or relative can go on the site to view proofs and place an order. Image Photography has many different portrait products you may order from their site. You may choose from a printable CD, a single print, two image composites or single image composite with digital mat with your name and the University of Minnesota Crookston logo.
