      Beautiful slide show! We were able to go to our son's commencement on Friday, but were unable to attend on Saturday night so this was so nice to see. He also happens to be in slide 63. Any way to get a digital copy? Thanks!

      What a wonderful set of photos to share with the world, Marsha. The university looks like a fantastic place to study and start the foundations of a great career. It'll be time for these students to head into the world and find their first graduate jobs soon and for the next set of students to begin their journey! :)
