Ph.D Convocation Page

Tuesday, May 16, 2000, 3:30 P.M. was the Columbia University's Doctoral Candidates Convocation Ceremony. It was held on campus in St. Paul's Chapel. Below are a few scanned pictures.

Here I am processing towards St. Paul's Chapel. Boy there are a lot of us here!

I'm finally getting close inside St. Paul's Chapel. It's a beautiful sunny day. I can hear the trumpet inside the chapel.

The Chapel is dome shaped with beautiful stained glass all around. There are a lot of people here. The doctoral candidates get to sit in front though.

The ceremony was almost 2 hours long. Archbishop Rembert Weakland gave us all an inspirational address. Here, my wife Jennifer and I are posing outside St. Paul's Chapel.

We took some more pictures around campus. Here we are in front of Low Library

and at Schermerhorn/Avery Architecture
