Student and president shaking hands during graduation ceremony


Photo Specialties will serve as Roanoke College's official photographer.  A photographer will be at the ceremony to take a photograph of each graduate as President Maxey presents the diploma and a second photo will be made as the graduate exits the stage with his/her diploma.  

An email will be sent out about a week after commencement with the subject line from "" to your email with instructions on how to view your proofs (including a private password--and please check your clutter/junk folder if you don't see the email from the photographer in your inbox). At this point, you may order online at  If you do not receive this notification, please contact Photo Specialties directly at or call 919-967-9576.  

Since photographs will be available, family members and guests are encouraged to remain in their seats, relax and enjoy the ceremony. We will also place a Roanoke College backdrop on the Back Quad for families to use for photos.
