Be a Commencement Volunteer!
Commencement is right around the corner and we need your help! It takes many volunteers to make the ceremonies run smoothly. There are three opportunities for the campus community to get involved! We are looking for student and professional staff volunteers in any and all shifts. Students who live on campus can make arrangements with the Office of Residence Life to move out after the ceremonies.
2016 Cap and Gown:
Regalia will be available to students in the Bookstore beginning Monday, March 29. View cap and gown information.
2016 Individual Graduate Photos and Commencement DVDs:
A professional photographer from Island Photography will take photographs of each graduate as they are recognized during each Commencement ceremony. This does not represent an endorsement by Fredonia and there is no obligation to purchase. It is a service provided to our Commencement families and guests.
Within 48 hours after Commencement, students will be emailed a secure link and a PIN to view and order photos. Students can also register the email addresses of friends and relatives so that they would receive a direct link to their photos by visiting the website: http://orders.islandphoto.com/Apps/RegisterGraduates.aspx.
For questions, graduates should contact Island Photography customer service at (800) 869-0908 or email email@example.com.
In addition, professional DVDs including both ceremonies will be mailed to each participant in July as a gift from the Commencement Committee, the Fredonia Alumni Association and the Fredonia College Foundation.
