The Department of Media Arts at Wesley College will be recording this year’s Commencement with multiple cameras and high quality sound recording. We want to share this video with you as a keepsake of this momentous evening. The cost of the DVD is $20.00 and will contain the complete ceremony including all the graduates crossing the stage to accept their degrees. Proceeds from the sale of the DVD will be used to fund program development for the Media Arts program at Wesley College. It is a win-win for all concerned and a perfect way to remember the moment for years to come. DVDs will be shipped in time for Christmas. If you have any questions please call Dr. Mike Nielsen at (302) 736-2449 or email him at nielsemi(at)wesley.edu .
