Yesterday’s graduation at Wilfrid Laurier was a new start in life in more ways than one for a pair of students.

Cheering erupted inside Lazaridis Hall, when Wansu Mao said yes after her boyfriend asked her to marry him.

He knelt down on a staircase landing for the entire hall to see.

When she said yes, he picked her up and twirled her around in her graduation robe.

The grad-groom then acknowledged the cheers of the people below.
