Graduation time

Last weekend was graduation time here. The undergrads got their BAs and BSes. The master’s students got their MAs and MSes and MFAs. And the doctoral candidates received their Ph.Ds. A happy time for all involved. Tomorrow morning my alma mater is holding their graduation ceremonies. I kind of wish I was there to hear the commencement address. Instead, I’ll just read it in the alumni magazine in a few months of course. But if you’re looking to get your commencement speech fix for the year, I suggest Jon Stewart’s (’84) humorous address to the students and parents of the College of William and Mary.
