Two students in academic regalia walk the Lawn

At UVA's 2024 graduation, students stroll the historic Lawn, a tradition symbolizing their journey's end. Clad in caps and gowns, they reflect on their college years surrounded by cheering family and friends, with the iconic Rotunda standing proudly behind them. It's a moment of pride, nostalgia and new beginnings.
