A new tradition begins
There's nothing like an outdoor party, especially one that
officially kicks off the rest of your life. The
unseasonably crisp (mid-50s) conditions did little to cool
the spirits of the thousands of graduates, family and
friends who gathered on Homewood Field on Thursday, May 22,
for Johns Hopkins' 127th commencement.
Temperatures, in fact, were of little
concern for an assembly of people hoping to stay dry, as
both weather forecasts and overcast conditions strongly
suggested rain. But positive thinking prevailed over Mother
Nature, as not a drop fell.
Three students, Writing Sems lecturer
Just before last week's commencement, three Johns Hopkins
students and a lecturer learned that they had received
grants from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the
2003-2004 academic year. The recipients of a Fulbright, one
of the most prestigious awards in academia, are Niall
Keleher, Anthony Pirnot, Suman Sureshbabu and Manh
The program awards approximately 1,000
grants annually and currently operates in over 140
countries worldwide. Successful U.S. applicants utilize
their grants to undertake self-designed programs in
disciplines ranging from social sciences, business,
communication and performing arts to physical sciences,
engineering and education.
