NYIT student speaking into a megaphone


Share Your Commencement Experience. It’s a Snap.

May 9, 2016

Congratulations, Class of 2016! You've scored a ticket to the hottest event this season: the 55th NYIT Commencement ceremony, taking place Sunday, May 22. Share your excitement, photos, and congratulatory messages on social media using the hashtag #NYITGrad16.

Your fellow graduates and their guests will be like paparazzi, relentlessly snapping photos throughout this event, so make grandma and grandpa feel special by posting a family picture of your own on Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter. You may just see your photo tagged on NYIT's live video feeds and projected onto the jumbo screens in the commencement tent and throughout campus.

Check out all the behind the scenes excitement by following NYITSnaps on Snapchat. And remember to get in on the action by using NYIT’s graduation Geofilter.

Of course, what celebration would be complete without a photo booth? Visit the alumni tent to show off your best poses with our life-size Instagram photo frame. If DIY is more your style, pack your selfie stick before you head out for commencement, rather than counting on your lab partner to photograph your good side.

Make your photos stand out. Remember to post and tag everything with #NYITGrad16—and connect with NYIT before the event on Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
