Bryant University, located in Rhode Island, told its graduates that they are not permitted to take "Selfies" on stage while receiving their diploma(s).

School officials fear that if all 800-plus graduates take a selfie, the ceremony will last too long, and thus become a distraction to those in attendance. The students are still allowed to take photos during the ceremony, just not on stage.

I wonder if someone started a Selfie Movement online and the school got wind of the plan. Did someone encourage all of the graduates to take a selfie while receiving their diploma and it got out via social media?

I don't know the answer, but I do know that Bryant University is aware of the infamous selfie and they want none of it at their upcoming commencement ceremony.

What party poopers.
