My work for MIT covering Commencement of the 2013 graduating class. It was my first for the university and was by far the rainiest graduation I have ever shot. The great thing about it though was that the students and their parents would not be denied the joy of the event because of the weather. I saw just as many smiling faces this day as I have for other any other commencement. Plus MIT takes commencement very seriously and really goes the extra mile to make all involved feel important. I was amazed to find out that the college actually gives the students their real diploma during the event and not an empty folder. And to top it off, they got little plastic baggies to put them in to keep them dry! Very cool.
