      Michele, my guess is that no one would mind if your husband accompanied you. Even if he doesn't, though, you'll meet lots of other new students in your college whom you can hang out and socialize with both before and during the ceremony. You'll find that most students are quite eager to start making new friends. :) -MP

      Does anyone know if family can attend Gone to Texas. My husband is an alumni of UT (Class of 2005) and I am starting at UT this fall and don't really know anyone. Would he be able to go with me?
