To help preserve the decorum of the event, it is requested that you exercise etiquette appropriate to the occasion. Respect your fellow graduates by holding your applause until all graduates have been recognized. As a courtesy to your fellow graduates, all graduates are requested to stay until the conclusion of the ceremony.

Some History:

 

In 1976, two Western Kentucky University faculty members took a dozen photojournalism students into eastern Kentucky and Tennessee to document the 11 remaining one-room schools there. The teachers didn’t realize it at the time, but that was the beginning of an annual trek.

 

Three concurrent workshops take place every October that fine-tune photography, picture-editing and multimedia skills of college students and mid-career professionals  in an intensive weeklong effort that documents a town and its surrounding countryside.

WKU faculty members are joined by volunteer shooting, editing and writing coaches who travel here from across the country —  from FRONTLINE, from the Los Angeles Times, from TIME MAGAZINE, and a host of other venues — to guide trainees and produce content for a photo exhibit, several multimedia productions, and a book of 100-plus pages. From their humble beginnings of travel with cameras, black-and-white film and sleeping bags, workshops staff now spend months planning and setting up sophisticated facilities with state-of-the-art computing and digital imaging equipment.
