Diploma Frames

Diploma frames are available at the University Bookstore located in the Tyler Haynes Commons.

Custom diploma frames, which can be either picked up or shipped, are on display year round.  A large selection will be available prior to and during Graduation Weekend.  Frames will also be available for purchase in the Robins Center on May 13.


You may purchase flowers in advance from Commencement Flowers, Inc. You may also purchase flowers on the day of commencement on the ambulatory level on the ticket office side and upper level patio in front of the Robins Center.

Personal Photography

For safety reasons, family members and guests will not be permitted to approach the graduate seating area and stage during the ceremony. GradImages, a University vendor, will photograph each graduate walking to the stage, receiving their diploma, and again off stage with a University backdrop. Only authorized press and University photographers are permitted on the arena floor during the ceremony. Anyone without proper credentials will be asked to leave the floor.

When the ceremony has concluded and the platform party has recessed, graduates and their families are invited to take photographs in front of the stage.
