|The procession of around 2000 graduates takes around half an hour.|
The graduation exercises include many traditions. The procession is
called “walking the lawn” because it takes place at the historic lawn in the center of campus.
|The graduates carry a variety of balloons, mostly huge, so the procession shimmers and bounces.|
|Here’s Miriam, walking with her close friends.|
