Baccalaureate and Commencement photo galleries

By popular request, online photo galleries for the Class of 2023 have been created—in collaboration with our event photography partner Nick Gould Photography—where graduates and guests may view and/or purchase photos from Baccalaureate and the Commencement ceremonies. Viewing the photo galleries is complimentary and downloads of individual photos for personal use are available for purchase directly from the photographer. We are pleased to be able to share the special moments of the Commencement celebration for the Class of 2023!  

NOTE: This photo gallery is separate from the graduate portrait package that grads and their families will receive directly from GradImages, Messiah’s official graduate portrait photographer.
