Graduation started at 11:30am this morning and ended around 3:00pm -- This was the academic procession, conferring of degrees, recessional and the recognition reception, plus a random break between the recessional and recognition reception where the MLIS graduates were wandering around because we were told to do a million different things and everyone was confused.
To be honest with everyone, this was the least organized event of it's kinda that I've ever been to. In addition to being unorganized, it was just odd -- We had no speaker, everything seemed to take forever and once the recognition reception rolled around everything became really informal. The highlight of the whole ceremony was the fact that Idina Menzal sang -- I love her, so I got a kick out of this.
