Commencement It was the 208 th Commencement, and, as happens once a year, the sun did rise and set on Hanover. The day, said one observer, was like a flag fluttering in the wind. No two Commencements are alike (compare this one, for example, with the exercises in 1794, which featured a horse race and "jugglers, mountebanks, sideshows, and auctioneers") and yet in some undefined way they are the same. Nearly all the speeches on Class Day and on Commencement day elaborated on a single theme: the meaning of Dartmouth. An iconoclast might view this as insular and parochial; a believer might see it as reflecting a profound truth. This personal account of Commencement is by one of the ALUMNI MAGAZINE'S undergraduate editors who also happened to be one of the 902 graduates. The assignment, he said, was "like reporting your own wedding or your own funeral."
