Photos and videos submitted by the deadline will be shared on Commencement day. General messages and call-outs to specific students are welcome.

To submit a personalized message of support:

Drag and drop your video or photo file.
Add your email address and any additional information you’d like us to know, such as a specific graduate you’d like to reach.

Video submission guidelines:
Video must use a horizontal orientation.
Center yourself in your video screen.
Find an area that has natural or soft light to create a balanced image.
Turn off nearby televisions and radios that create background noise.
Speak loudly and clearly.
Keep the video short and sweet.
Videos must be MOV or MP4 files. (iPhone/Apple software will save as an MOV, and Microsoft will save as an MP4.)
