Commencement 2009 had a stormy start, as thunder, lightning and a soaked Alumni Lawn and chairs drove the Class of 2009 into Memorial Gym. The house was packed, and the rain did little to dampen the enthusiasm of the graduating students and their families. News and photos can be found on the Vanderbilt homepage; a sample is below (Great job Jenny, Daniel, Steve & John!).
Kudos to the excellent Commencement team on another job very well done.
Congratulations, Class of 2009, and the very best of wishes for what comes next. You were a remarkable class and you will be remembered!
