05/26/10 Grif.Net – Graduation Chants

At a recent graduation ceremony at Virginia Tech, the students gathered in
the football stadium. The joy and exuberance of the day led to some
good-natured chants

En masse, the engineering students stood and shouted, “We’ve got jobs! We’ve
got jobs!”

From the other side of the field, the business school graduates answered,
“Working for us! Working for us!”
