From one graduate to another, congratulations class of 2012!
Also discussion of the best and worst speeches and the LSA Dean's use of the word 'gumption.'
fair point that
Gumption. Not a graduate (1 more year), but attended it and froze my fingers and toes off. 30 degrees in April woohoo.
Congratualtions and condolences. Graduating from Michigan was the worst thing that ever happened to me. / Nostalgia
It hurt so bad to graduate. Michigan is the best thing to ever happen to me and I will forever look back on these past 4 years as the best of my life. I cannot wait to move to LA and rock my Maize and Blue until the day I die. Thank you Michigan, and all the gumption you've instilled in me.
Also - Gupta is the fucking MAN. I have a hardcore man-crush rivaling that of Brady.
Shouldn't you be getting drunk with friends and family?
Great name, I took two classes with Markovits and did research for him. Brilliant man.
Congrats to my fellow graduates. Sanjay Gupta killed it, such a great speech.
Don't worry, I did.
Congratulations to the new members of Michigan alumni -- Go Blue!
Oh, well....congrats to all the seniors! You just finished the best 4-5 years of your life. Do us proud.
Now tell your parents to leave town....they can't drive.
So it only goes downhill from here?
Congratulations to the University Of Michigan Class of 2012 and welcome to the proud ranks of "The Leaders And Best".
Forever and always, "Go Blue!"
Congrats Graduates!!! GO BLUE!
and SANJAY GUPTA IS THE MAN! Amazing speech! Actually, all the speeches were great!
Way to go Wolverines!!!
Odoms' cap said "Hope for Pahokee, Eating" in red glitter. Good guy.
Koger kept yelling @kogernotkroger follow me on twitter
Congrats to all you whipper-snappers joining the party!
All graduates including my younger daughter who just got her U-M degree today. Thank the Lord the rain held off! Gupta gave a great address I thought. He's a true Michigan Many for sure.
Has it really been 1 year since I graduated. Wow, life moves pretty fast.
Two years for me.
Graduated 6yrs ago. WOW.. Time flies young bucks.. Go Blue
... For saying the any graduate of Michigan is a young "buck." Those types "graduate" from that school in Columbus.
Congratulations fellow Michigan alumni!
Who the hell negs this? Congrats to my new alumni brethren!
You can actually find that out by clicking on "Voting details" at the top of the thread.
Thanks dude, feels crazy to now me known as alumni. At least Sanjay killed it with his commencement spech. *Gumption*
I enjoyed the use of two more things at number 7 and ending up with 10 things to do from Gupta..
Now start working on your grad school applications, because working for a living is way overrated. My advice is to put that off as much as possible.
Yes, congrats. Now please leave and take your parents with you. Traffic has been terrible this year, Art Fair bad.
Congratulations to all of you!
I've been on the faculty for 14 years now. Every year I've been asked to serve as a Faculty Marshal. Every year I've let someone else do it. This year, I decided it was finally "my turn." So, if you came down stairway #2 to enter the stadium, I was the guy at the bottom telling you to watch your step, and offering my best wishes. I even saw several students from my classes. It was such a good time, I'm thinking I should volunteer again next year.
I couldn't be more proud of you all. Go do great things.
Congrats on your graduation. Damn, still got about another 2 week of courses here.
