That’s pure joy emanating from Chris Sosa *17 as he receives his academic hood from his adviser, associate professor of chemical and biological engineering Rod Priestley, in Jadwin Gym June 5. The hood symbolizes the transition from student to academic colleague; the next day, graduate students wore them as their degrees were conferred at Commencement. “Tomorrow, you will join Princeton’s graduate alumni community, a group distinguished not only for its intellectual power but for the depth and breadth of its commitment to serving the nation and the world,” President Eisgruber ’83 said at the hooding ceremony.
