Photos: Fenway Park, mortarboards and May flowers

This past Sunday, Northeastern held its 121st commencement at Fenway Park to celebrate 4,754 graduate students in the morning and 4,643 undergraduates in the afternoon. As they processed, students showed off their mortarboards, many of which were decorated with everything from prescription medication labels to vibrant florals. During the ceremonies, speakers shared words of wisdom, some of which they borrowed from politicians, grandparents and even Canadian hockey player Wayne Gretzky. Meanwhile, friends and families cheered from the stands and were filled with pride. Fireworks capped off the event
