Convocation Update

My college has seperate "graduation" ceremonies for each school, called convocations. At the convocation, each graduate's name is announced. It is done this way since the graduating class is too large to have all the names announced. I'm in the School of the Arts, and I won the Outstanding Art History scholar award. Because of this, I sat on the stage during the School of the Arts convocation. It was held in our school's newly renovated amphitheater, near our College Hall administration building. This is really interesting since my great Aunt Clara also went to Montclair State University and graduated in the amphitheater in the early part of the 20th century. It was neat to be in the same place that she had been many years earlier.

During the convocations, the graduates wear the robes only. It was outside, and really cold that night. Since I knew I was going to be on stage, I wore my hot pink moccasins. I thought it would spice up the black robe a bit. Enjoy the pics!

Leaving at the end of the ceremony

Eric and I - this cracks me up. He was Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar." His brother Kyle graduated with me, but it just made me laugh that Jesus was at my convocation. Small world. I found out they were brothers after a show one day when Kyle was there, and I was wondering WHY he would be there (different part of the state, musical theater - and when you see people outside of where you normally see then, it throws you off. At least, it throws me off!)

It was a nice ceremony, and was the starting point of graduation festivities. I'll update about graduation later on. I'm slowly but surely catching up!

my graduation was at continental airlines arena, which is where the Nets (and I think Devils) play. The convocation for each school was in the ampitheater though.
