Beta Photo Composite Proofs

Beta Photos has posted their proofs for the graduation photo composites by the stairs in the Cafeteria. If you had your photo taken, please check and ensure that your photo shows the correct person (including that you are on the composite you should be on) and that your name is spelled correctly. If everything is in order, put a check mark beside your name. If not, write your name on the side of the composite with the changes that need to be made!

If you are in Tech, Beta would like confirmation of the program name that should appear on your composite. Please place a check if the current name is correct, or adjust as necessary.

Thanks for your patience,
