As a special final (free!) service for our graduating students, the ESS department recorded a video of the ceremony and shot still photographs of each student receiving their diploma. The photographs can be viewed online via a web slidshow, and/or each photograph can be downloaded in its full 12 Mpixel resolution for high quality printing. Use the "Orig-Pic" link at the top of each slideshow page to download and save the original fullsize photo (about 5 MB jpeg each). The video can be viewed as a live stream (1.5+ hours), or you can choose to download and save the almost 800 MB mp4 video.
