Pictures and Videos 

As a public college event, The College of Idaho will be recording media in the form of photography, audio, and video.  This media may be reproduced and used for educational, illustration, promotion, advertising, and trade associated with the College.

Ceremony: Arrangements have been made with Pete Grady Photography to photograph each graduate during the ceremony.  You will be under no obligation to purchase, but information will be available at the ceremony.

Guest Seating

Currently the College does not require tickets to attend Commencement exercises.  Typically, the event is held out of doors and we recommend coming prepared for the weather. We recommend arriving prior to 9:30 am for optimal seating.

Additional Activities

Commencement Weekend begins with a Baccalaureate Service on Friday, May 16 at 8:00 p.m. in the Jewett Auditorium.  This is a contemporary chapel service for graduates, families and friends, and is coordinated by the Office of Campus Ministries.  The service includes music, student slides, an inspirational message and a light dessert reception at its conclusion.

Please join the College immediately following Commencement, in the Finney Forest, for light refreshments 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm.
