Posted by ENC Student Life on Apr 28, 2017 7:07:00 AM

Graduation is just 1 week away! 

In 7 days seniors will be walking across the stage, receiving their diploma, and taking a final picture with Dr. McGee. In just under 150 hours you'll be taking pictures in your cap and gown with friends and family. Your 4 (or more) years of college have all been leading up to this special day and we are excited to watch each senior get recognized for their hard work. 

While you're off having breakfast or getting ready, the ENC facilities crew is hard at work setting up hundreds of chairs for your friends and family on Wolly lawn. This hyper lapse from a few years ago is still super mesmerizing. Can't Look. Away.
