Congratulations to all grads!
If you are a distance student and not able to attend commencement (or not able to attend for whatever reason), you may be interested in viewing the graduate commencement exercises via webcast:
Both the afternoon and evening Graduate Commencement and Hooding ceremonies will be broadcast live tomorrow (Thursday) on Comcast Cable (Channel 28) in New Haven, West Haven and Hamden. Streaming video of the ceremonies will be available on the Internet through the Graduate School Web site at www.southernct.edu/grad. In addition to live webcasts, on-demand broadcasts will be available after the ceremonies. The RealPlayer 9 (*see Update*) or higher is required and a broadband Internet connection is recommended to access the Webcasts.Thanks to the Graduate School for providing this link for those not able to attend in person. I do feel a lack for not having attended graduation for my own distance degree, but it just wasn't feasible. I would love to be able to see faces.

No word on the undergraduate commencement, so far.
Update: For those, like me, whose preferred browser is Firefox, the Real Player video may give you fits. Try the Real Alternative plugin, and the advice on the Mozillazine forum.
