Pictures & 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.

Graduation Ceremony: The College takes official class and individual photos throughout the day. All of the photos are available free of charge on our Flickr page. You may use these photos as you'd like, including printing, but the College retains all copyrights.

Guest Seating

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

Additional Activities during Graduation Weekend

Commencement Weekend begins with a Baccalaureate Service on Friday, May 17 at 7 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.

Baccalaureate includes music, an inspirational message, a light dessert reception and a photo slideshow of the graduating seniors. Please send baby/child photos of your graduating student to Dr. Phil Rogers.

Please join the College immediately following Commencement for light refreshments on the lawn east of Sterry Hall from noon-2 p.m.
