Watch the New Paltz commencement from the sky


More than 1,200 undergraduates took part in Sunday’s SUNY New Paltz commencement ceremony, and the college took its drone to the skies to showcase the magnitude of the event.

Oh, by the way, SUNY New Paltz has a drone.

Through a short drone-shot video on Sunday, the SUNY New Paltz Instagram post asked, “Which blue dot are you?” (We’ll forgive the college for the “Pomp and Circumstance” soundtrack, since this was a graduation and also for basically implying that the graduating students are Smurfs).
The Freeman covered the event and took many, many photos, from the ground, because we’re apparently not allowed to shoot drone videos, even though it’s a First Amendment right and all that.
But we digress!
Check out SUNY New Paltz’s Instagram account on, uh, Instagram!
At the Freeman’s (trolling) request by an unnamed Life Editor, a school spokesperson said the college will post some more drone videos, so stay tuned. Or go back to work, you lazy, lazy person.
