Academic Honors, Honorary Fraternities
The University has combined photography services into one vendor: Lifetouch Photography of Des Moines, Iowa. Lifetouch photographers will take the composite photos ($25, up to 20x24), the class photo ($14, 10x15), photos of your being hooded during Commencement as well as of you with your diploma and a variety of candids.
They will also collect information from you in advance so that you can receive emails directly from them for proofs and to purchase items.
In addition to the basic photos, you will also be able to purchase additional photos from their gallery of University-sponsored events (not Senior Week), mounted photos and collages or a personal book of just you and some favorite campus and ceremony shots to remember this momentous occasion.
All orders, payments and inquiries will be directly between Lifetouch and you. Take a look at their website.
Webcast & Video
In order to accommodate friends and family members who are unable to attend the ceremony in Municipal Auditorium, KCU will provide a live webcast of the Commencement Ceremony. Shortly following graduation video of the Commencement Ceremony will be available online. Please watch for the link on the KCU homepage.
