BOSTON — Rhode Island’s Bryant University is asking students to resist the urge to take selfies with its president while receiving their diplomas.
University President Ronald Machtley said students ask him to take selfies on the Smithfield campus all the time. But he said having more than 800 students snap photos with him as they get their degrees will slow down the already hours-long ceremony.
He said he’d be happy to take some photos afterward.
Students will be able to take photos until the start of the May 17 graduation and post them to a new website hosted by the university.
Senior and Worcester, Massachusetts, native Ali Luthman said some students might be upset about the no selfies rule but “no one is crying about it.”
