      @Eliza Of course, but she’s not included in the CU press release. Good call, and I’ll add her to the notables list.

    @Anonymous Isn’t Chelsea Clinton a student at Mailman? Is she graduating this year?

    1. Alum says:

      @Alum She is a Mailman student, though I don’t know when she’s scheduled to graduate. Bill also had two potentially life-saving heart surgeries at CUMC, so he has other reasons to want to help out.

      [My catchpa: flaked harmony. That brings someone to mind…..]

    @Anonymous This is probably a silly question, but is it even possible to get in to a commencement ceremony if you’re not a family member of a graduating senior?

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous It depends.
      Go to: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/ceremonies/commencement/docs/events/school/index.html
      Each event tells you if you need tickets.
