What should my family members wear?
We suggest that you let your family and friends know that it can be quite warm the day of the ceremony. That said, they should dress with weather and comfort in mind. Business casual attire – for example, dress pants and a shirt for men and a dress for women – is appropriate.
Friends and parents are welcome to take photos before or after the presentation of diplomas. During the presentation, a professional photographer will photograph your graduate, while families and guests are encouraged to relax in their seats.
