2012 Ohio State Spring Commencement, 10,600+ students!!!

It was quite a busy always. Dawn and I went out to dinner with her cousin Friday night, watched a few soccer games Saturday morning, graduation party for a friend Saturday afternoon, and then finished the weekend with Ohio State's graduation. My brother was among the 10,600+ students graduating, for their 400th commencement. It was the largest graduating class ever for Ohio State...and there is a good reason: switching from quarters to semesters. The university was actively trying to graduate students to avoid any credit issues during the transition. By brother got his degree in civil engineering and will be making more money than I will...that's for sure. It was great to be back on campus and we hung out afterward at the Browning Amphitheater for pizza and a little family picnic. It was a fun, hot day. Now that three of us siblings have graduated from Ohio last brother will begin his studies there this fall, possibly majoring in bio-medical engineering. OH! I did see President Gee yesterday just before the ceremony began. He was in a hurry as he passed me, but I did snag a photo of him as he was heading back down to the lower level. Gordon Gee asked everyone to use the hashtag #OSU10000 to tweet about their times at OSU so for anyone who follows me on twitter, now you know why I was using that all weekend. Congrats Clark for getting your degree.

Rain showers this morning will be followed by scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. The rain will leave early Tuesday and we start to clear out as we deal with lower humidity for the middle of the week. Highs will be in the upper 70's the next few days followed by the low to mid 80's as we approach next weekend with plenty of sunshine. We are not looking at a chance for severe weather today, but instead a little more of a steady rain this morning with the scattered storms this afternoon. We will see a few dry spells so not a complete washout, although it may seem that way. Stay dry and have a good one!

  1. Sounds like a great weekend at OSU. We're in Florida where the weather hasn't been so nice for the last few days. :\
