So I mentioned that this weekend Greg, Carrie and I drove out to Syracuse, New York to attend the graduation festivities at Syracuse University where my son Evan received his Masters of Library and Information Science. We had a wonderful time! I was very impressed with the way SU handled the whole thing. Because there are close to 4,000 graduates, on the day before the official graduation ceremony, they hold Convocations for each of the colleges. So Evan got his chance to process across the stage and have his achievement acknowledged along with the others in his College. Back in the day, when I graduated from University of Cincinnati, they did nothing like that so I didn’t even bother to attend.
This is much better.
|Undergraduates rush down the street for their Convocation Ceremonies. Their robes are made out of recycled plastic bottles. How cool is that??|
And on Sunday, the ceremony was relatively short and sweet but still with all the pomp and circumstance.
|There's the Master himself.|
|And here I am...proud mother on Mother's Day.|
So now he is on the job search. But first, he and I are going to go to Budapest, Vienna and Prague for a few days. This should be an interesting trip for two very directionally challenged humans. I’ll see you all when we return.
And oh, by the way, I have to show you what Carrie made me for Mother's Day.
|I love it!|
