We also got a sighting of acclaimed director Martin Scorsese in front of Jonathan Edwards College. We are hearing that he will be receiving an honorary degree tomorrow.

An email this evening from Dean Kyle Farley to JE students with instructions for Commencement alluded to Scorsese:

…after the President’s party walks by (with some famous people, like a certain film maker who got a JE tour today from Teri), we walk through Phelps Gate.
