The time is growing closer when Iowa State University will celebrate it's latest class of graduates and it was never more evident than the last few weeks. The campus was filled with young people either wearing or carrying their robes and caps trying to find that one special place on campus to capture in pictures their greatest accomplishment thus far. Their are so many picturesque locations but most popular were the steps in front of Beardshear and the concrete wall just south of the campanile. They gathered like a murder of crows politely waiting their turn to stand before parents turned photographer with either camera or phone camera posing their subjects with the best background. There were smiles galore as the grads looked forward to entering the workaday world and parents knowing that they were getting a raise in their monthly income, congratulations to all.
