Here are some photos that I took on Commencement Day. If you have photos to add to the blog (just a few of the best ones, please!), email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
President Thomas introduced Professor Dillman, who read the honorary degree proclamation for our commencement speaker, Elizabeth Cousens.Elizabeth Cousens (UPS Class of 1987) gave what was perhaps the most serious and meaningful commencement address ever. Professor Veseth nominated her to be our commencement speaker, which might explain the IPE cords that you can see in the photo.Lea, Devin and Chrissy adjust their thesis cords.Diana and Maggie are happy graduates. Maggie ran a half-marathon before commencement!Daniil, Mike and Daniil's mother.The requested caption for this photo is "Blood Brothers." It is probably best that I don't explain!Joel Higa and Kathleen Tokuda. Dean John Finney, who has been in charge of commencement for three decades, was given a special, surprise diploma by President Thomas. He is retiring, and so "graduates" with the class of 2007 exactly 40 years after his real graduation from Puget Sound.The future looks bright for our graduates. We are very proud of you. Congratulations!
