Cyrus and I attended the NYU College of Arts and Science 2011 Commencement this morning (and well into the afternoon) to watch 1650 or so grads walk across the stage, many of our own students among them. To all we say: best wishes on the future!

The above photo of was taken at NYU Commencement 1977 in Washington Square Park. Facebook user and NYU alum Megan McCarthy added this caption when she uploaded it: “My friends and I stayed up all night cleaning Washington Square Park for the ceremony — free coffee and doughnuts and $30 pay. Still a dumb move because I was bleary eyed during my graduation the next day.” More NYU Commencement history here.
