2010 Commencement DVD.jpgJune 14, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. — Three weeks and one day after DePauw University's Class of 2010 received their undergraduate diplomas, the DVD of the ceremony has arrived from the replicator and is shipping immediately. The dual-layer disc contains the entire graduation ceremony, a photo gallery with more than 400 images, and several hours of bonus content. 

Remaining supplies are limited.  The DVD may be ordered online for $19.95 for the first disc; additional DVDs sent to the same address will be $8 each (7% sales tax will be added to Indiana orders). 

The four-camera production of the May 23 ceremony includes all of the speeches, including the principal address by marine biologist and conservationist Wallace J. Nichols '89. The DVD also includes video of each graduate receiving his or her diploma. As in past years, the disc's menu will allow you to quickly access the spot in the IMG_1109.jpgprogram you want to see. If you're looking for a graduate whose last name is Jones, for instance, you click on the letter 'J' in the menu, you're immediately taken to the first person whose last name begins with the letter 'J' receiving his or her diploma. Users can also jump to specific speeches, or watch the program from beginning to end.

Other features include a series of clips covering the four years the Class of 2010 attended DePauw -- including the 2006-07 women's basketball team's national championship and Ubben Lecturers such as Karl Rove and Howard Dean (pictured at left) and Tony Blair -- and highlights of the past four battles for the Monon Bell.Rove Dean Hands Ubben AT.jpg

The DVDs are professionally replicated, not duplicated, and are housed in a decorative jacket.
