Photography & Social Media
A professional photographer will be capturing each graduate’s big moment on stage as s/he receives their diploma. ICO provides one portrait to each graduate at no cost. Due to a very strict fire code, family members are not permitted to walk forward (and block aisles) for photography.

We’ll be posting Commencement news and pictures to ICO’s Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram. Just be sure to tag us and use hashtag #ICOClassof2019 to join the conversation!
