Chimes, cheers, and applause: Sounds of celebration highlight Commencement 2015

May 20, 2015

Yale’s 2015 Commencement on May 18 began in far-flung corners of the campus, as groups of soon-to-be graduates milled about, adjusting their gowns and mortarboards, asking friends for help with their hoods, taking photos, and posing for others. Soon these swirls of students resolved themselves into orderly streams as they began their march (metaphorically) to the future and (literally) to Old Campus for the university-wide degree ceremony.
