Adam and (most of his) senior fraternity brothers posed for pictures outside the house between graduation sessions. At a school as large as Purdue, there are several divisions of graduations, taking place over three days. The Ag major brothers graduated on Saturday morning, and the Engineering division was in the afternoon. You can see the different tassels in the photo. The maize is for Agriculture, and they are already turned. The orange tassels are Engineering, and that ceremony was still to come.

graduation address was given by Mitch Daniels, former Governor of the State of Indiana, and now President of Purdue University. He talked about optimism vs. pessimism with regard to the real world issues facing the graduates, and how just one person - a Boilermaker for example - can make a difference in the world.
