A Brit explains Princeton reunions to his countrymen 

An Englishmen explains Princeton reunions, and the differences between the British "graduation" and the American "commencement" in general, to his countrymen back home. Lots of interesting insights in to the meaning of class -- not in the Marxist sense -- in the United States. And don't miss the subtle distinction between a British "procession" and an American "parade."

How poignant. No wonder Princeton grads are so loyal. Does any other commencement come close?

How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!

Means something different at this.
