Graduation Day at St Olaf College

 Today was graduation day here at St. Olaf. As usual, many people attended: the graduates, their families, friends, and, of course, professors.

This day brings mixed feelings among the graduates. They are happy to have completed their studies, but also sad to leave a place and a community they were part of for four years.

In the photo on the left, I am with one of the students who graduated today. She was part of the class I taught in Tanzania in January, "Hemingway in East Africa."

In the photo on the left, I am with another graduate, one of the students I took to Tanzania in 2011, on the  LCCT program. He studied for one semester at the University of Dar es Salaam.
