Family and friends are also welcome to take photos as graduates file into place and when graduates receive their diplomas.
Etiquette & Safety
During the roll call of graduates, audience members are requested to hold applause until all graduates’ names have been read. This courtesy enables the hearing of every graduate’s name. Families and friends of graduates are invited to stand when their graduate’s name is read.
Noisemakers are prohibited, as well as signage that impedes the view of other attendees. Tobacco, alcohol, fireworks, and weapons are also prohibited.
Anderson University automatically sends the names of students on the dean's list to the student’s hometown newspaper.
