students at Commencement on Sunday, December 15, 2013 at

ceremony by announcing the name of each graduate. Although
this tradition takes time, the special recognition of each graduate
symbolizes Gannon's commitment as a student-centered
university. It communicates value and affection for each
individual and family. Accordingly, graduates and members of
the audience are asked to remain in their seats throughout the
ceremony so that they do not interfere with the special moments of
Professional photographers will be present
to photograph each graduate. A video will also be available for
purchase (order form was mailed with invitation). To avoid
congestion and to maintain decorum during the ceremony, friends and
family members are asked to refrain from approaching the stage to
take pictures. After the recessional, when all graduates have
left the commencement area, graduates and their families are
welcome to return to the stage to take pictures. It should be
noted that the Gannon monument alongside Old Main has become a very
popular site for commencement pictures.
