College graduation moved inside

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College’s commencement on Sunday has been moved inside. The ceremony, which will see 557 Middlebury students receive diplomas, had been scheduled to be held as usual on the lawn on the main quadrangle behind Voter Hall on College Street.
With consistent rain forecast for the weekend, college officials on Friday announced that they had moved the ceremony into Nelson Recreation Center on South Main Street/Route 30. The ceremony is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Jonathan Safran Foer, a writer and author of critical and commercial acclaim, will deliver the 2013 Middlebury College commencement address. Foer’s first novel, “Everything Is Illuminated,” was published in 2002 when he was 25. “Everything Is Illuminated” was the summer reading assignment before the class of 2013 arrived as first-year students in 2009, and was a topic of discussion during their orientation. The seniors nominated Foer to be this year’s speaker.
