REAL People: Reflections on Commencement
REAL People: Reflections on Commencement
Commencement ceremonies can all seem the same — 'Pomp and Circumstance' plays, graduates process in their caps and gowns, a distinguished speaker imparts wisdom, and loved ones capture it all with their cameras. Yet within these unchanging traditions, there are countless unique moments that form memories to last a lifetime. On Monday, May 12, Candler's Class of 2014 will take part in the 169th commencement exercises of Emory University, making their own memories along the way. With that backdrop, we asked members of the Candler Alumni Board (CAB) to share their Commencement memories.
