In one of her final duties as president of Anne Arundel Community College, Martha Smith stood before this year's graduating class during commencement and engaged in a moment of call and response that had all the trappings of a student pep rally. Smith implored the 1,998 graduates Thursday to pursue careers that speak to their passions, then several times instructed students seated to her left to utter, "Do what you love," while telling the right side of the room to say, "Love what you do. " Over and over again, the graduates bellowed the chants, some with the kind of loud-decibel roars most often associated with the Ravens faithful.
