Parents and supporters filling the stands cheered as sunlight caught the colorful hoods of black-robed graduates filing into Franklin Field at Penn’s 257th Commencement on May 13.
When Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., this year’s keynote speaker, walked in with Penn President Amy Gutmann, heightened applause rang through the stadium.
Gutmann conferred graduation honors on more than 5,000 students.
