On Sunday, May 14, Government majors in the College's Class of 2017 attended the Department's Commencement ceremony behind the Wren Building. Families, faculty and guests gathered on a sunny, breezy Sunday morning to see some 170 graduate process in and up the steps to receive their diplomas from Professor Paul Manna.
Earlier the crowd unanimously approved a resolution commending Professor Manna's predecessor as Chair, Professor John McGlennon, for his nearly two decades of service in that role. The Department also honored several individual Seniors for their outstanding achievements.
