The Graduate

Happy Family

Mariel graduated from Swarthmore College Sunday with a BA in Psychology. In addition to her diploma, she received a planting from the Arboretum, where she and every grad has a plant named for them.

It was a gorgeous day, hot and sunny, and the ceremony was held in the outdoor amphitheater. Highlights included watching Mariel receive her diploma, listening to excellent speeches, including one by Stephen Lang of Avatar fame and a Swat alumnus, and watching as light bulb-topped mortarboards of the engineering students lit up as they received their degrees. The final recipient, rather than a switch, had a twist-on bulb. Very Swarthmorean.

I will eventually add a photo of the graduate and proud family. I left my camera at my sister-in-law's house.
