Notre Dame moved their graduation ceremonies back outside to Notre Dame Stadium in 2010 because of the renovation of Purcell Pavillion -- the first time since 1959 -- and it was awesome!
Folks, if you're up and at 'em this morning you should watch this event -- it's really good. The Academic Procession will begin at approximately 9:00 PM as the 2,000 graduates of the Class of 2012 will walk "out of the tunnel" into Notre Dame Stadium. What a way to graduate!
