Crossing over... (ECW, part 1)

...to the alumni side!

Yesterday marked the start of commencement weekend with all the annual traditions of this very senior weekend.

First up was Class Day at Glenn Memorial where talk show host Chelsea Handler advised students to pursue their passions and never take "no" for an answer. And here's a fun fact about Handler: her siblings are Emory alumni.

But here at the EAA, our favorite commencement weekend event is--of course--the Candlelight Crossover where seniors cross the bridge over Houston Mill Road from the Emory Conference Center to the Miller-Ward Alumni House and become alumni.

While cars below just saw hundreds of well-dressed 20-somethings walking over a bridge with candles in their hands, we welcomed in a new generation of smart, wide-eyed alumni with reunion-filled futures.
