Friday Follies: Commencement 2020

This is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time, actually faith restoring. I think they were all back to clean out their dorm rooms and just organized themselves. Many thanks to Grungy for the pictures.

 

 

Bonus: They drew a small but influential crowd.

    Excellent! When I saw this CNN story about Olin’s “fauxmencement” (held yesterday/Thursday), I immediately thought they exhibited a Rice-level degree of imagination and quirkiness.

    Completely heartwarming — good for them!!! I hope and pray they’ll have a chance to do it with their whole class in May, but if not, at least they’ll have this. Thanks for sending it, Melissa!

    That is very sweet. Wouldn’t surprise me if they are invited back to walk at the next Commencement if they want to.

    Posts on Facebook are attributing the organization of the event to Christina Tan, Thresher editor.
