Summer is here, which means another round of graduates going out into the world from Northwestern!
Storms threatened to rain out the outdoor commencement address in Ryan Field on Friday, but Morty Schapiro made the successful call to keep the ceremony outdoors. NUAMPS provided a live stream for the event, as Michael Wilbon of ESPN fame addressed the 2010 graduates.
We also shot and webcast this year’s Kellogg and WCAS convocation ceremonies in Welsh-Ryan Arena. Family members and friends who were unable to make it to the ceremony were still able to watch their grads walk across the stage this past Saturday afternoon. Irene Rosenfield, Chairman and CEO of Kraft Foods, spoke to Kellogg’s business graduates. WCAS hosted Steven J. Harper, author and professor at Northwestern.
Five NUAMPS student employees received their diplomas as well – congratulations to Chris Amos, Micah Gardner, Alex Knell, Molly Lafferty, and Evan Twohy!
