U of L Commencement

Posted:

Hundreds of people braved tonight's harsh temperatures to start what may become a new tradition at the KFK Yum Center.  Breaking an 11 year tradition, the University of Louisville held commencement ceremonies at the arena for the first time.  In the past they've been at the Expo Center or the Kentucky International Convention Center.  About 700 students were expected to take part and the ceremony went off despite fears the icy weather would force a last minute change. U of L says it's a great way to showcase the arena for those who don't attend basketball games and for out of town guests.  But the university isn't sure if future graduations will take place there.
