Screen Grab of of CC Times story on SMC Plot PartiesThe Contra Costa Times visited Saint Mary's for the 2012 commencement weekend to cover the SMC plot parties, the annual post graduation celebrations held by graduating seniors and their families. 

Reporter Gary Peterson and photographer Karl Mondon (who shot the image of Chapel lawn celebrations) wandered the College campus, reporting on the unique and near forty year tradition of families partying on the lawns of Saint Mary's after commencement.

The story "Time to 'plot party' on," along with several photos of the post graduation gatherings, appeared on the front page of the local section Contra Costa Time's Sunday edition.
