The GradSlides recognized and honored each graduate with the student's name and degree (a photo and quote, if submitted). Information appearing on the graduate's slide was based on how much information was provided to GradImages.  GradImages contacted all graduates via their St. John's email accounts with a link to submit information. If a graduate did not submit a photo or message, their name and degree still appeared on a GradSlide.

Note: The names listed in the GradSlides were not an official listing of degree recipients. Only those students who completed all degree requirements by May 18, 2020, appeared in the GradSlides.
