(You've gotten my perspective of the Commencement experience--now see it through the graduate's eyes. The following post is written by my very good friend Stephen Hollabaugh [see picture below], a recent graduate of the Vanderbilt Class of 2012.)
The Vanderbilt Undergraduate Summer Research Program is pretty self-explanatory….it is a summer research program for undergraduates at Vanderbilt! Okay, but really…it is a program that students apply to (usually for the summer after junior year, but sometimes after sophomore year) that allows them to do research in any field (to apply, you submit your project...

I've stayed on campus after it empties out before, but this year is my first time staying for Commencement here at Vanderbilt, and there are a few ways in which the campus starts to shift in preparation for this big event.
