Photographs, Videos, Flowers, Coffee, & More
Widener University has engaged a commercial photography studio, Lifetouch, to take an individual color photograph of each graduate receiving a diploma as they walk across the stage. Graduates do not have to make prior arrangements for this service. Lifetouch will post a proof of the portrait on their website at Lifetouch Special Events within three weeks after commencement. On the Lifetouch home page, under "Find Your Event," enter "graduations" for event type, "Pennsylvania" for state, and "Widener" for school. There is no obligation to purchase a print. Please tell family and friends about this service and advise them that it will be unnecessary to move from their seats during the ceremony to take pictures. Guests will be permitted to take photographs from their seats, but the use of flash is discouraged.
SENIOR CLASS PORTRAITS
Senior class portraits will be taken by Lifetouch on campus in University Center in February. If you miss your on-campus opportunity, you can still have your portrait taken by contacting Lifetouch directly to setup an appointment at a local Lifetouch studio. Please schedule your appointment as soon as possible by visiting www.ouryear.com. Enter School Code 64. Students may also call 1-800-OUR-YEAR (1-800-687-9327) during normal business hours.
Widener's University Relations Department will record the commencement ceremony. This professional, full-coverage recording includes processions, platform presentations, awarding of degrees, and speeches. You can leave your video recorder at home and relax; we'll ensure that you don't miss a thing. The graduate ceremony and undergraduate ceremony recordings are available on YouTube. There are also condensed versions on YouTube.
FLOWERS, T-SHIRTS, & SWEATSHIRTS
