UCI Graduation: Five Hours of Pomp and Circumstance?

We don't know at this point whether President Obama will accept the invitation from UC Irvine to speak at the 2014 commencement, but some UCI students are already unhappy at plans to hold the commencement at Angel Stadium and consolidate all the departments and schools into one big (and long ) ceremony.

“We understand that students and their families may have already made plans that are upset by this change and we are working to minimize those impacts and make this a memorable and family-friendly event,” Lawhon said.

If it lasts 5 hours, it will surely be memorable. I mean who can sit through a 5-hour rendition of Pomp and Circumstance? Surely not Obama.

"We can take off for California now, Mr President. They've started playing Pomp and Circumstance."
