The graduates can be seen in the center of the photograph, wearing academic gowns, caps, and tassels. They are holding papers in their laps. Behind and to the left of them are their families, who are watching the graduation ceremonies. These men and women are wearing dresses, suits, and hats. The large windows can be seen on either side, and on the back wall of the auditorium is a sign that reads, "Depart to Serve."
