1989 March 21 2009

Music: G. Verdi’s Triumphal March from ‘Aida’

PNU under the blue sky

March 21, 2009. Barely six hours before the 101st Commencement Exercises, I passed by the PNU quadrangle on my way to see our professor to submit my research proposal. There were quiet a number of people but mostly graduate students. The usual Saturday crowd of undergrads were not around. The obvious center of the PNU universe was the quadrangle.

March 21, 1989. Less than an hour before the 81st Commencement Exercises began, one of the graduates was so excited. Her father and her sisters were with her. Her mother missed this event because she wasn’t feeling well.

time of my pnu life Hello diploma!

Wishful Thinking. I hope to give you another graduation tour next year, in the 102nd Commencement as I march to the famous processional hymn, walk on the red carpet, get up on the stage and fulfill one of my dreams 🙂
