Digital Photo Booth
Snap a photo, make a GIF or create a Boomerang with this year’s virtual photo booth. When taking your photo, make sure you are in a well-lit area with lots of natural light. You may also upload a favorite photo. If you are using an iPhone, please use Safari. When using other applications that require camera access (such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or others), be sure to disable the camera functionality on those applications, or close out of the application to allow the virtual booth to access your camera. This feature will be available May 3 through May 9.
Leave a message or post a photo for graduating students! Open to students, staff, faculty, friends, and family. This feature will be available May 3 through May 9.
Each year’s Graduation Celebration features a signature drink. Since we can’t be together this year, we invite you to join us in this tradition by making our signature cocktail (or mocktail, if you prefer) at home. Download the printable recipe cards for this year’s signature drinks below.
