Caltech Commencement 2010

It happened….I GRADUATED from Caltech after 4 years, 2 degrees and 1 amazing experience. The ceremony took place last Friday, June 11, 2010.

Here I am the day on graduation eve, scoping out the assembled stage and chairs.

Since my last name begins with ‘A’, I was the second person to my called on stage—I was able to find my chair for the ceremony…right in front lol

After the candidates march, the faculty march onto the stage. See my Advisor and the Vice Provost Melany Hunt? She looks silly marshalling the faculty to their seats… 😛
