Immediately following the 2017 Emerson commencement ceremony, President Lee Pelton got back on stage to make a quick announcement that he had “a few extra diplomas up here” if anybody wanted one.
“Hey everybody. Just a heads up, if anybody out there wants a diploma that didn’t get one, please come up now. This is the last call. I don’t want these to go to waste.”
At press time, a group of Suffolk students were sprinting to the Agganis Arena to get their hands on coveted degree from a respectable institution.
