Class of 2008 Makes It Official
Graduation Saturday: Lions' Class of 2008 celebrates graduation as they step over to alumni status as LMU holds annual undergraduate ceremonies.
May 10, 2008
Los Angeles, CA -- Getting your waking papers usually takes on a negative meaning, but for the Loyola Marymount University Class of 2008, Saturday's "walking papers" was a sweet end to a memorable four years. LMU celebrated the Class of 2008 at its annual Undergraduate Comencement on Saturday in Sunken Garden with 82 student-athletes being honored by the Athletics Department at a breakfast gathering prior to the ceremonies outside of Gersten Pavilion.
For the second year, the Athletics Department invited the senior class to gather as athletes one last time in a send off to graduation. The 82 members of the Class of 2008 and their families gathered outside of Gersten Pavilion Saturday morning. All 21 varsity sports were represented at the gathering, all mixing before they officially became alumni.
Some present still have work to do as five members of the baseball team would go through the ceremonies before catching a plane to take on No. 3 Arizona State in Tempe later Saturday night.
It was a successful end to successful careers as the group combined to win more than 25 team and individual championships in their careers. Here is a list of those who graduated on Saturday.
