Graduation 2009 a ‘go’

Welcome to Graduation 2009.  Traffic is still light at 5:45 a.m. heading into campus, but that’s sure to pick up in the next hour.   A number of parents and guests are already here.  About a half dozen TV satellite trucks are already set up in the parking lot behind Wait Chapel.  It’s very cool on Hearn Plaza, but at least the rain has stopped.  There are only two ways onto the Quad: the parking lot between Taylor and Davis and the parking lot between Poteat and Kitchin. All guests have to pass through a metal detector.  There are also a couple of police dogs watching over things.  There are a number of University employees at the entrances in case you have questions.  Other employees are wiping off the chairs on the Quad.  Because Reynolda Hall is closed this morning, thanks to Buz Moser and the bookstore staff for letting us set up shop in the bookstore this morning.  We’ll blog throughout the morning as we can.
