Graduation – 5 September
These are pictures from our graduation rehearsal and actual graduation ceremony. I'm not sure if guys dress up like girls for all rehearsals, but this was a special group. We had this theme of "making space sexy" ... I guess you had to be there to get the joke.

Ken Singing His SSP03 Song, 5 September 2003.Ken wrote a song for SSP03 to sing at graduation. It was really cool. I was lucky enough to help him with some of the English so I had a number of previews before the big event.
Feeding Frenzy I, 5 September 2003.After any event, ISU tended to cater the meal afterwards. Note the students swarming the table. We learned early that there was little hot food, and the food tended to run out, so it was really a frenzy at the begining with people just camped out at the tables gobbling.
Feeding Frenzy II, 5 September 2003.More of the food rush.
