Graduation at UVa


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.

Robed academics.
