Today was Commencement. We are required to go to at least one graduation ceremony a year, but I try to go to both the winter and spring commencement because:
- We have a close knit group of students and only 3 full time faculty, so it means a lot to them for us to come and support them. Plus their parents love getting group shots of us with the students.
- We typically have students graduating at both terms, and it seems wrong to only show up for some of their graduations.
- I paid $800+ for my academic regalia, so any chance I get to wear it decreases the cost per wear.
