Congratulations!! Just wanted to make sure you don't miss seeing the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, if you haven't before... it's breathtaking.

Congratulations! And good for you for transferring.

Yea! Congrats again!
You got a hood!?! I thought only MS and PhD's got hoods. For my graduation from a world-famous university all I got was a flimsy black mortar cap and ugly tassle (we tossed the rented robes in a pile on our way to get our diplomas.) :)



Hoo - I think technically there are hoods for everyone, but most US colleges, at least, don't bother with them for anything that isn't a graduate level degree. Congrats to Elizabeth on her graduation and on her extremely snazzy hood! :)

First off ... congratulations! What a blessing to be able to look back and see how God so faithfully led you to, and then through, your program. And to really love what your studying ... not very many people can say that (though I'm thankful to say that I loved being in college). Also, may I say that, in my experience, those friends that I had who were really tired of school (ie, counting the exams and papers they had left, etc.) by the time they were ready to graduate were also those who were the most faithful to study hard and get the most out of their classes. I know that God must be pleased with all of your hard work!

And second ... gosh dangit if my DH isn't in the D.C. area this week? Now I REALLY wish I was going with him. I would have absolutely loved to have met you. I think we would have had a wonderful time. Phooey! Maybe next time? And please ... if you're going to be near NYC anytime, you have to let me know, o.k.?


Major congrats to the girl 'n the hood. (Sorry. I couldn't resist.)

I'm so happy for you. I wish I'd been brave enough to do what you did when I was miserable at the Big University -- I did transfer, but only to the Slightly Smaller University down the road. You are so fortunate to have had the experience and so daring to take the leap.

We should get together this summer. I think we'd get along, despite our vastly different political leanings.

Yay! Congratulations! The day I graduated was one of the happiest of my life. I was sad to be leaving my friends, but I was looking forward to life! ...And in fact, I've pretty much kept in touch with my old college friends anyway, so it all worked out.
