Well. It's not official, but it seems this is the way Pacific University does things. They have you pay almost $100.00 for a cap, gown, tassel, and hood, never mind the $20.00 red thing hanging from my neck (I don't even know the name of it-anyone?) then they sit you in a two hour ceremony, give you a bottle of water, march you across the stage, toss a hood on you (which is kinda funky) then have the nerve to give you an EMPTY diploma holder. Then they schedule a class the following monday??? Are you kidding??
Ok, despite how bizarre that sounds, I actually had a great time. Two work samples to go, and a reflection. Stay tuned for the Grad Party in early June!
