The big day is finally here. Several stress-out sessions and too many exams later, you are finally graduating! Con”grad”ulations! The key? Dress up, but be comfortable (and follow your school dress code, if there is one).
Universities across the nation are preparing for that big day at the end of the year called convocation: the most ceremonial and important day of your academic career. Caps, gowns and hoods are a big part of academic ceremony and often carry meaning of achievement and degrees conferred.
