I'll Drink To That

We were all seated and it was time for the formalities. Speakers are always present at such events and this was no exception.

This year's Honorary Degree Recipient and Commencement Speaker was no other than Jamie Hyneman. He grew up on an apple orchard in Indiana and is now best known as the host of "MythBusters" which is broadcast on the Discovery Channel. My advice to him is to stick to his day job. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

More speaking.


Some of us even listened.

Notice that the weather has cleared and it is finally starting to warm up.

Finally! It's time for conferring the degrees. It looks like the engineers are ready.

It looks like they're ready to celebrate. Engineers are always prepared.

It looks like Dan is ready. Hey, hold on there a second. That is sparkling grape juice isn't it? Of course it is. What was I thinking?

Now the business majors were not going to be outdone by the engineers. Oh no. They were going to celebrate like there was no tomorrow.

How you ask?

By throwing baby powder! Take that, engineers.

Katie doesn't look too thrilled at the possibility of being covered in baby powder.

Ready. Set.

Truth be told we were all crouching behind out chairs waiting for the baby powder to rain down on us. The business majors need to talk to the engineers because the powder just didn't fly the way I think they expected it to.

All the degree majors had their own way of celebrating but at the end of the day they all agreed on this as their final hurrah.
