Commencement is a time for family and friends to gather to celebrate a new generation of achievement and success. Throughout the commencement season at Rochester, those celebrations include several families who share not only the joy of graduation, but also a legacy of ties to the University. We asked a few of those multigeneration families to pose for photos this spring.
The College ceremony brought together three generations of the Scala family: John Scala ’80, his son, Andrew Scala ’11, a mechanical engineering major in the Hajim School from Lancaster, Pa.; and Andrew’s grandparents, Robert ’58M (PhD) and Janet Eddy Scala ’55N. Photo: Brandon Vick
