Commencement 2009: The Long Good-bye

On May 3, 55 English majors walked across the platform at Sheean to receive their degrees, and afterwards feasted on the traditional scones and strawberries. Then it was on to the “major” stations, where students could introduce faculty and parents to each other and take photos.  Here, “prof cam” shows a shot of the recessional. 

 

 

There were hugs for some, jokes with others, and plenty of bittersweet moments. 

Some students said they were headed for graduate school, some had PR and writing job interviews, while others were joining the Peace Corps or traveling. They’ll be missed!
