The day finally arrived — Friday, June 15, 2012.
Not just any other Friday. This day was special.
It was the day Daniel James Capone would graduate from Drexel University.
Five solid years of hard work and determination, and one of only a handful of students, DJ graduated summa cum laude, with honors, AND a MASTERS DEGREE.
So at 1:30 in the afternoon, the stage was set, the place was packed, and the students began to enter into the room. It was a great moment when the students graduating summa cum laude were asked to stand up..
The keynote speaker was internationally recognized environmentalist, biologist, and author Dr. Paul Ehrlich.
Afterwards, DJ accepts his diploma from school president, John Fry.
then congratulated by Provost Mark Greenberg, College of Arts and Sciences Dean, Donna Murasko, and Dean of Students, David Ruth.
….and of course mugging for the crowd : )
Afterward, DJ poses with “Mario” the Drexel dragon statue.
