This is why we put the Commencement tent up early, for days like these. It is a gray and stormy day, and looks like the rain will continue throughout the day.
As you can imagine before a massive event like Commencement, the whole campus is all-hands-on-deck for the preparations. So the Daily Deac will be very light this week.
The set of pictures below span two different days: yesterday afternoon, when it was glorious, and this morning right before the rains came. This morning the Quad was all full of the big stacks of 200+ chairs and those were being moved on trucks to locations across the bricks. Parking lots are roped off to allow all the deliveries and the equipment. This is a major operation.
For all of you at home, please begin all supplications for the ideal weather – low 70s, sunny, warm with gentle breezes. There is no better Commencement weather than that.
