New College of Florida graduation at a glance

Graduates: 177.

Speakers: Izzeldin Abuelaish from the Daughters for Life Foundation; David Mullins, professor of mathematics; and Cassandra Corrado, literature and gender studies major.

Shining moment: The New Cats, New College's "best and only" student-led jazz band performed.

Best quote: "I encourage you to always listen to you inner voice. Do it," Abuelaish commanded the graduates

Interesting: A steady stream of bare feet and strange costumes -- as is the New College custom -- filled the aisle as students marched in during the processional. Garb include formal dresses, suits, tie, boxer shorts and everything in between.
