Commencement Etiquette
University commencement ceremonies are special events for all involved. If you choose to participate, please remain for the entire ceremony.

Electronic Devices
As a courtesy to those around you and to our graduating students, please turn off pagers and cellular phones during the ceremony. We also ask that you refrain from using extreme noisemakers.

Jacobson Studio of Mayville will take professional photographs of all graduates between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. in the Wellness Center gymnasium.

In addition, a photographer from Jacobson Studio will take a picture of each candidate while receiving the diploma cover from the president during the commencement ceremony.

A few weeks after the ceremony, an email will be sent to the graduates letting them know that the photos are up online and ready for ordering. This service is provided to ensure quality photographs and to avoid the confusion of many individuals attempting to position themselves for picture taking. Jacobson Studio will also post pictures of the entire ceremony on their website a few weeks after the event.
