This is, without a doubt, the most often-played processional at graduations from elementary school through college and university. Only the main theme has been adapted here and there are several "escapes" if the piece is required to end early. In fact, with all the optional endings, the piece can end just before the 1 minute mark or can be extended to just over 2 minutes or even longer if repeats are taken.
