    What is the difference between this session and the professional photography place in student centre?
    Thank you.

  2. Michael says:

    Will there be another opportunity to have your graduation picture taken? The bookings are full.

  3. Karun Tangri says:

    Yes, more dates will open! The photography company the DCS works with prefers to roll out dates as the current ones fill up rather than open all bookings at once. Keep checking as more dates become available.

  4. Karun says:

    The DeGroote Commerce Society works with an external photography company, not the studio in the student center. If you would like a composite photo, you need to book through the vendor the DCS works with.

    When would be the last day to take gradation photo?
