New Hampshire hit its peak for college commencements this weekend, with more than half a dozen schools celebrating their graduating classes.
Former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was the keynote speaker at Saint Anselm College on Sunday.
"Work engages you in life. You come to know more people, to understand their motivations and values, and to learn the intricacies of the enterprise that employs you," said Romney, according to a college spokesperson. "Dive in. Get more from your job than the paycheck. Hard work is living large."
Gov. Maggie Hassan also addressed graduates at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
Saturday was a busy day for commencements, with ceremonies held at the University of New Hampshire, New England College, Franklin Pierce University, and the community colleges in Portsmouth, Laconia and Nashua.
