Graduation brings with it uncertainty, oppor
tunity and of course, gifts.
Money tops many graduates’ wish lists,
though luggage, housewares and keepsakes are
Karen Kumm, a senior theater performance
major, said the most useful gift she could receive
would be money and a plane ticket.
“I’m going to Florida a week after gradua
tion to have spring break. Finally,” Kumm said.
“I’ve been so busy preparing for grad
tion that work hasn’t been a priority, so get
ting money would be nice.”
Katie Liquori, a senior communica
ton studies major, said she is
expecting to get money. ^
• “Most of my family lives
■ on either coast, so I think it Jl

send me anything else,”
“I just want money” 1

it has been fairly popular with the university this
De La Cruz said Things Remembered
sold six graduation throws Wednesday.

sold a lot of class-of-2000
“The graduation frames
are really popular,” Curtis
said. “A lot of students buy inspi
rational plaques for one another.”
Danita Howe, a sales associate
for The Market, in Gateway
Mall, said the main
sell are Boyds Bear figurines.
“We also sell a lot of candles for graduation,”
Howe said. “They always seem to be a popular
