Pre-covid-19, convocations in Son#2's university were held in their halls on campus.
And yes, we had to wear the entrance ticket wristbands!
The sight of gown-clad graduates and parents in their Sunday best hopping onto awaiting trains to get to the amphitheater was priceless!
I mean, who wears a tight skirt and 4-inch heels in a theme park!
Kudos to the university for this tremendous effort. A traditional gown-and-cap ceremony is a HUGE deal. Not getting to walk with pride across the stage to the sound of thunderous applause is like not getting closure after years of hard work, a rite of passage if you will.
