Commencement Photographs
A professional photographer has been contracted to take individual photos of graduates before and during the May 2010 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. Please note: audience members should avoid crowding the stage or aisle ways throughout the ceremony.
