Videos and images from Rowan University's 2014 Commencement.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – and some 2,300 Rowan University graduates – shined despite daylong torrential rains May 16 for Commencement 2014.
The Governor, invited to Rowan to deliver the ceremony’s keynote remarks, gave an emotional, rousing address that traced his family’s history in America starting with his grandmother’s birth aboard a ship from Sicily.
Football stadium turned into a sprawling Commencement grounds complete with seating for more than 10,000, signage, bunting, speakers, and a stage and truss system befitting Bon Jovi.
