RISD Commencement 2011
This past weekend in Providence was beautiful, the weather was sunny but dry and cool. It was the perfect weekend to be outside, but this year's RISD graduation ceremony was held indoors for the first time. For as long as I know, RISD has always had an outdoor ceremony in the middle of their downtown campus, where roads were closed and it felt like a block party or a huge festival. On top of that we have our 'traditional' dress code for graduates, where the only rule is that there are no rules. However, this year, it was a little different, it feels a lot more formal in the convention center, and we lost some oomph.
