The road to commencement
Whether fate or a moment of clarity intervenes, the
path of life is seldom a straight one. For some of those
ending an academic journey this week, the road both to
Hopkins and to graduation has taken many turns. Here are the
stories of four unique students--in Arts and Sciences,
Medicine, Nursing and SAIS--and the unforeseen detours they
have encountered along the way.
Ceremonies put cap on 126th
A chapter closes and a new one begins for the more than
5,500 students who will receive degrees and certificates
from the various divisions of The Johns Hopkins University
this week. The university's 126th academic year is drawing
to a close, and once again it is time to honor those ending
their scholarly journey.
In the second year of a new tradition, the
universitywide commencement and Homewood undergraduate
diploma ceremonies will be held under a tent on Garland
Field, located at the southern end of the Homewood campus.
