Senior Group Photo and Commencement Instructions for Graduates
Graduates, wearing caps and gowns, will assemble on the Beck Center steps for a group photo. After the picture is taken, graduates will go directly to Haggin Auditorium where the Commencement Marshal will give full instructions for the procession, seating, procedure for receiving diploma and recession. All graduates must be on time for this, as the process must be perfectly understood and observed by all.
