    Commencement

    Students at Trinity College, Dublin don't graduate, they commence -- a ceremony entirely in Latin. And afterwards, they can run through the Campanile for the first time -- because doing so as an undergrad means failing the exams

    Wayne, I had to ask the 'comencee' about this; yes there is one, it used to revolve until the students filled it with stones...but it is to be fixed. She thought there was another somewhere, but didn't know where.
