Sibren Graduates from Princeton

June 5-6, 2006

Sibren received his Master's in Electrical Engineering in the course of a two day extravaganza that included a (1) "hooding ceremony" for advanced degree candidates only, at which he received his master's mantle; (2) the commencement itself, which included the graduating seniors; and (3) a graduate student reception hosted by the alumni.

For ease of viewing we have divided 72 or so pictures among three Webshots albums, each with its own link.  Just click on the images at left (below) to go to the appropriate album.  Once you're in the album, click on the thumbnails there to see the pictures at full size.  As usual, just hit the Back button to return to here.

Hooding. The hooding was a lot more intimate than commencement because every individual student was called to receive his or her hood.  Sibren's is yellow (for engineering) and orange (for Princeton).

Commencement.  There were about 700 graduating seniors, plus the advanced degrees (another 200 or so, including Sibren).  There were a number of honorary degrees awarded, including (strangely) one to Mia Hamm.

Reception.  This was just a lunch put on by the alumni.  Interesting, one of the attendees milling around was John Nash, subject of the movie "A Beautiful Mind".  For the record, he does not look even slightly like Russell Crowe.
