The University of Virginia lowered the curtain on its 185th academic year Sunday as members of the Class of 2014 received their diplomas. There was a festive atmosphere as students in UVA’s eleven schools picked up their degrees. The University awarded more than 6300 of them this year. Many of UVA’s newest alumni brought colorful balloons to the Lawn that honored a Jedi knight from Star Wars, characters from The Lion King movie, the Tasmanian Devil, and the cast of Spongebob Squarepants. The main speaker was Navy Secretary Ray Mabus who saluted America’s military and encouraged the audience to consider the armed forces. Mabus also attended commissioning ceremonies for UVA students who plan to serve in the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps.
