Shining Moment: When members of the graduating class got up to join the MSA Goldtones for a performance of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon."

Best quote: "MSA is very much like ... a box of crayons. Not the kind you find at restaurants, or the simple eight-pack, but like the huge 120-pack. ... MSA is made up of completely unique individuals, each with their own gifts and passions ... and each of our different colors add variety to the pack." -- Hannah Martin

Interesting sight: Kasidy Petrosino decorated her cap with "I (heart) You, Mom."
