Professional photographers from Lifetouch will set up near the Commencement platform to take photographs of each graduate as he/she is handed a diploma. Other photos of the graduate in cap and gown and with a diploma will be taken in the Social Hall in the Howe Student Activity Center before the graduates line up and march in for the ceremony.

This photo will be taken in front of a green screen and professionals will drop in photos of campus photography behind, thus giving each student and their family 4-5 photo options. Details about purchasing these photographs will be sent to students' homes directly from Lifetouch. There is no obligation to buy. Additional information and online ordering is available through the company’s website after graduation day.

Family and friends may take their own photographs also.

Physically Challenged Attendees

If special seating or accommodations are needed for a physically challenged family or friend, please contact the Physical Plant at 319-385-6271.
