Pomp and circumstance

Impressions from the graduation festivities ...



It was a perfect spring day in Arkansas.



The crowds massed outside the basketball arena where the degrees would be conferred (contingent on the completion of any remaining requirements).



Huggin' people outside ...



Huggin' people inside ...



Huggin' people in what Archer called "fancy meeting clothes."



Awaiting the big entrance.



The music begins ...



Here's the view from the middle of the undergraduate crowd.



Walk across the stage, get an empty diploma holder.



Everybody wants to wear the haute couture. (Cady Gray: "Graduation-y!")

It's already graduation time? We went until the middle of June or something, I swear.
