For Neeley School of Business marketing instructor Bob Akin, graduation is the hardest part of his job.
"It's like giving up your own children," he said. "You want to keep them."
For eight years, Akin has watched his former students walk across the graduation stage and into successful careers.
Although he received both his bachelor's and master's degrees from TCU, Akin never saw himself teaching here 8212; or anywhere, for that matter.
