Transcript Commencement can mean just about anything after four or even 10 years of college. At the very least, it seems to give seniors a memorable end to their academic careers. students sit through two days of freshman orientation so they can get there. Actually, it takes a few additional hours to earn a college degree, but at its elementary level, graduation signals the end of those day-to-day deeds students loathe - the dangerously caffeinated study nights, Sahara-like, monsoonlike or Congo-like- treks across campus and the occasional boring lecture. Enduring all of this and thinking a little along the way is an exceptional accomplishment for anyone can sustain it. And yet, its funny that the moment one clasps a degree in his or her hand doesn't feel like any other formality standing in the way of a romp into the real world. For most seniors, the caps, gowns, tassels and every thing wrapped up in commencement weekend fixes a wonderful end to their college careers.

"(The graduates) have worked so hard, and they've spent a lot of money, and all they want to do is dress up and say 'Hey, look what I did:" Pall speaks of graduation with an enthusiasm you'd expect from a parent or participant - expressing a regret that every senior doesn't enjoy the festivities. "Its really the culmination of a long academic process; its a celebration;' Pall said. This years commencement weekend had 15 separate ceremonies held at various locales across campus.
