BOULDER, Colo. — Snow and rain turned out to be a bad mix for graduates at the University of Colorado in Boulder, but the school went ahead with commencement ceremonies outside on Thursday morning.
Last year was a much different picture at Folsom Field with blue skies and perfect temperatures.
Not so for the class of 2019.
Snow fell Thursday morning and there were a couple of inches that blanketed the inside of the stadium when the program began at 8:30 a.m.
Because of the poor weather, the commencement speakers and much of the program will be held at 9 a.m. Friday at the CU Events Center.
It was CU President Bruce Benson’s final graduation ceremony. He’s retiring this year after more than 10 years on the job.
