Beginning a new tradition with the Class of 2010, the College of Arts and Letters held its inaugural “Diploma Ceremony” on May 16, 2010.
After the University’s traditional, campus-wide commencement, the almost 900 graduates from the 2010 class processed to the Purcell Pavilion for the intimate, College-only event.
The ceremony provided a more personalized experience for students as they heard their names announced before walking across the stage to receive their diplomas from Stuart Greene, associate dean, and to be congratulated by John T. McGreevy, the I.A. O’Shaughnessy Dean of the College.
Below are candid images of students as they waited to receive their diplomas:
