Serif fonts in scientific graphs

Thesis font question: do I use the same font for the text body and graphs? Any serif-favorites beyond Times New Roman?

It feels wrong to use a serif-font in the graphs - is there an academic standard for this?
I'm pretty much set on using "Times New Roman" for the text body - it's the standard and I suppose my thesis is not the place to get funky in fonts. But: would you know a nice serif-alternative, not too different, yet not as old fashioned that I might want to try?
PS: I checked with the department, and they don't have a preference
