The end is near. Exams, finals, papers, essays, presentations, and dissertations all must come to an end. Years of study and sacrifice; of stress and sleeplessness come together and are marked by the presentation of a diploma. Whether you were enrolled on scholarship, at a tuition-free institution, or with massive loans, graduation day marks the end of academic bliss and the beginning of the real world (unless you are on course to become an academic).
Graduation ceremonies are transitions. You enter in one form and you leave in another. They are sort of magical, if you think about it. There are only a handful of life events that have the same transformative power - weddings, graduations..and criminal court? I digress.
Graduations are celebrations but so often the celebratory elements of the day get overlooked. But pomp and pageantry can only take someone so far.
