What should people wear?
Some students dress very casually because they will be wearing robes during the ceremony. Others dress in business casual attire because they plan to take photos and will be going out to dinner afterwards. We recommend that you dress in light clothing -- the robes can be quite warm.
There will be a professional photographer present.
