A student stands with hand over heart as the Star Spangled Banner opens the commencement ceremonies at the University of Alabama on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2011, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The university held graduation exercises for its class of 2011 on Saturday and Friday night. The school says it's awarding 4,770 degrees in all during three ceremonies, and about 70 percent are for students who were supposed to graduate in May but had to wait because of the twister that struck near campus on April 27.
