On Saturday May 7, the College of Arts and Architecture gathered to celebrate the achievements of our graduating undergraduate students. Continuing a years-long tradition, a Dixieland-style jazz band (led by retiring School of Music professor Dan Yoder) led the procession of students, faculty, and administrators from Walters Courtyard in the Arts District to Eisenhower Auditorium. Following a moving speech by this year's Commencement Speaker, Lisa Rogali ('16 B.Mus.Ed.), degrees were conferred to students graduating from the Department of Art History, the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, the School of Music, the School of Theatre, and the School of Visual Arts. Bill Holloway ('82 B.Arch.), president of the Arts and Architecture Alumni Society, inducted the graduates into the society, and School of Music student Katie Carpenter led the crowd in the singing of the Penn State Alma Mater.
