Grad Images will again be with us at the Commencement ceremony to take photographs of graduates as diplomas are awarded. Following Commencement, graduates will receive, at their home address of record, information on ordering Commencement photographs. Past graduates and parents have been pleased with the quality, variety and price of the photographs as well as the courteous service provided by Grad Images. This service provides an excellent option to capture this significant moment in your student’s academic career.
We look forward to being with you at Earlham as we celebrate the Commencement of the Class of 2020.
