Photos: Graduation (Pre-Ceremony)

We’re sharing 800+ photos from Graduation Day, and we’re splitting them into four groups over the course of several hours to ease load times on the website.

Feel free to share these with friends and family.

If you’d like to buy prints, you can do that easily here. (You can even upload a photo of your graduate and search for them there.)

As always, this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors, many of whom are listed on the right side of the page. You can support Republic Tiger Sports by reaching out to these businesses to tell them you appreciate their sponsorship.

First up, our backstage shots from before the ceremony:
