To congratulate graduating students and welcome them into MarooNation, the Alumni Association and their affiliate student organization, R.E.A.L. Bears, are hosting a photo opportunity with the PSU Bear statue the day of commencement.
This project has two primary goals:
- To provide graduates an opportunity to connect with the Alumni Association
- To connect the tradition of incoming students taking pictures with the statue during SOAR, with the tradition of graduates taking photos with the statue after commencement
The photo event will take place on May 16 between the first and second, and second and third commencement ceremonies:
- 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
- 3:30 – 5 p.m.
How it works:
- Graduates will arrive at the Bear statue in their caps and gowns, and volunteers will snap their photos with the statue.
- Volunteers will tag the photo with #BearGrads.
- The photos will print out on a special, hashtag printer. The printer is being made available by Photographic Services.
- Graduates can pick up their free, commemorative prints of their pictures in the PSU.
All graduates are welcome and encouraged to get their photos taken with the Bear on commencement day.
