College graduation is a big deal. Such a big deal, in fact, that many want to immortalize the occasion by snapping a selfie while they walk across the stage. But Rhode Island's Bryant University is putting its foot down by asking the seniors not to try to take selfies with its president while receiving their diplomas.

It's not that the school administration has no sense of fun, though. It's simply a matter of too little time. According to the Huffington Post, "The university's president, Ronald Machtley, says that he's fine with grads snapping photos during the ceremony, as long as they're not up at the podium. But if every single one of the 800 graduating students stopped to selfie their big moment, it would take up too much time and make the ceremony run long."
