#PSUgrad—Share the experience!
Soon-to-be graduates and families of soon-to-be graduates: Tell the world about your tremendous accomplishments. Share your photos and thoughts, and include the #PSUgrad hashtag on your favorite social media platforms.
To commemorate this milestone occasion, a professional photo will be taken of each graduate being congratulated by the chancellor. No pre-orders will be taken. Photos can be viewed and ordered after commencement by visiting the Film Center's Web site.
To avoid congestion and maintain decorum during the ceremony, we ask that family and friends refrain from approaching the platform when taking pictures or using a video camera.
