Graduation Education

Filed under: Personal — Neil @ 8:36 pm

1. It is apparently rude to leave after your family member has been recognized. This is despite what many around us doing so.
2. The amount of applause for a graduate is in direct
porportion of the surprise of them graduating.
3. I will not walk when I complete my masters.
4. It is rude to blog during the ceremony.
5. I’m most impressed by the decorations on the top of the graduates hats. If I owned a company I would hire employees based on this rather than their GPA.
6. Always bring a baby to such occassions so that you can leave when they begin to cry.
7. The more difficult a name is to pronounce the more honors they will have received.



  1. Dan didn’t walk when he got his MDiv at SWBTS. His family decided they would not recognize his accomplishment due to the fact he didn’t walk. (Not his dad—the rest of them!) So, when you choose not to walk, and your family disowns you, just call us! 🙂

  2. My mom still gives my dad grief about not walking when he graduated from State. I’m guessing that a seminary graduation service is more drawn out than a typical graduation. Too many preachers means too much is to be said.
