Before or after the day, you can get professional formal graduation photographs taken. The University has provided a set of academic regalia for all Simon Fraser University degrees to Artona.
Photographers from Artona will be at your ceremony to take a photograph of you at your special moment of recognition on-stage. They will contact you directly with information about how to order your photographs. If you do not hear from them within a week, you can contact them through their website.
Artona will be set up on the North side of Freedom Square on convocation day for four-pose individual and family portrait sessions before and after each ceremony. Graduands are photographed on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit them after you pick up your regalia!
You can book photo sessions at Artona's Vancouver studio prior to convocation week. Visit artona.com to book your preferred time before convocation.
A series of beautifully crafted degree and picture frames, especially designed for Simon Fraser University, will be sold at all the convocation ceremonies.
Choose from elegant metal or beautifully crafted wood frames, with the exclusive SFU 24 karat gold plated medallion or the stylish gold foil embossing. Your parchment is easily inserted into these quick-change frames, which are further enhanced with a special clear acrylic cover to protect against undue fading. All frames are easy to hang, as no extra hanging hardware is required, and all come with a lifetime guarantee on parts and labour.
The frames are available at the SFU Bookstore/Spirit Shop. If you purchase your frame at your convocation ceremony, you will save on shipping. However, if it is more convenient you can order online at www.sfu.ca/bookstore. Proceeds from the sales of these frames will be used to help the SFU Alumni Association and their programs.
Visit the Burnaby, Surrey or Vancouver campus bookstores for SFU merchandise and gifts. View their online store to browse their list of items for sale.
