We are working with Marching Order to create graduate recognition slides to present during the Virtual Commencement and Degree Conferral Ceremonies.
In March, graduates will receive an e-mail providing them with the opportunity to upload a photo, along with a message (not to exceed 150 characters). In addition, graduates will be able to phonetically spell their name or record it so that the name reader appropriately pronounces it when their slide is shown.
A personalized link with login information will be sent to the graduate's St. John's e-mail address. If a graduate does not receive instructions to "Create Your Graduation Slide" by April 1, 2021, and they believe they are eligible to graduate in May 2021, please e-mail [email protected].
Graduates, along with family and friends, will have the opportunity search for personal slides or the slides of friends, and download slides to share across social media.
The graduate slides will recognize each individual graduate with the student's name and degree (in addition to a photo and message, if submitted), and the reading of their name.
Graduates who submit a photo to Marching Order will automatically be included in a digital mosaic representing the Class of 2021.
The absolute deadline to upload your photo and message to your graduation slide is Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 11 a.m. EDT.
