There has been a steady increase in students that are graduating from Emerson College while waiting in line at Boylston Street’s Einstein Bros. Bagels.
Seniors near the front of the line are highly anticipating reaching the end of line and finally getting the hell out of there with their egg sandwich and diploma.
“Jesus Christ. I’ve been waiting here since Freshman year,” grunted Victoria Johnson, VMA ’17.
In response to the rising trend, the college has partnered with Sodexo to have a two-in-one commencement/breakfast food service they call “Graduate While You Wait” In which a Sodexo employee delivers an annual commencement speech while periodically shouting out various order numbers.
