Share your commencement Instagram photos


It’s graduation season at North Dakota State University. As you get ready to walk the stage at commencement, be sure to grab some graduation shots across campus to commemorate your time at NDSU.

To help capture your success and accomplishments, we’ve compiled a list of the best spots on campus to snap a photo on graduation day. We want the smiling faces of all our NDSU students and families to fill our Instagram feed, so be sure to tag us at @ndsu.official and use #NDSUGrad when posting.

Commencement ceremonies are scheduled for 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 15 at Sanford Health Athletic Complex.
