There are 4 comments on Hot, Humid, but Still Celebratory: A Look Back at BU’s 149th Commencement

  1. Wonderful photos showing the joy, pride and relief of the graduates. This class has been through a lot of challenges over their 4+ years. So happy that they could celebrate together on this beautiful, summer-like day.
    Reminds me of my graduation back in 1969 when the Babcock dorms were almost new and BU still had a football team. My Mother said to me, “I don’t know anyone who loved college more than you!” During my subsequent visits to campus, I have talked with many students about their feelings towards BU. I have been surprised and impressed by the consistency of their positive comments. “I love it here” has been the unanimous theme.
    To the photographers, great job capturing the graduate’s joy on this momentous day.
    To the graduates, CONGRATULATIONS!

  2. It needs to be said, that if they knew days prior about the heat advisory, they should have move it earlier or later.
    It was very hard to enjoy such a commemorative day for so many, due to the extreme weather.
