We understand that Commencement is an important experience for students and families. With this in mind, we are happy to offer the following for those interested in photography during the ceremony:

  • The College has partnered with GradImages to capture a photograph of each student as they receive their diploma tube from President Elliott, as well as one of each graduate with their Conway Cane. Photo packages will be available for purchase through the GradImages website.
  • The Office of Communications will have photographers at Commencement assigned to general coverage. These photos will be made available, in full resolution and free of charge, on the Amherst College Flickr site in the week following Commencement. You are welcome to download, share, print and send these photos.
