Ordered commencement robe today February 25, 2012

Posted by thinkphd in : Miscellaneous , trackback

I ordered my commencement robe today, having finally decided on this one:

Northcentral University Deluxe Doctorate Package with Piping (Black Velvet) $561.00

The price is high but I will use my robe for local commencements as well as the one for NCU. I remember looking at the robes several years ago an wondering if I would EVER get to wear one. Graduation seemed so very far away and so unobtainable. This journey to a PhD has been very difficult but I just kept hanging on through all the ups and downs.

So Husband and I are preparing to go to commencement in AZ, and take in some of the landmarks while we are there such as the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam. I am also VERY EXCITED about meeting some of the folks that I have been talking to by phone and email. I have made so many friends through the years and it will be great to sit over a cup of coffee and visit (and NOT talk about courses, TPs, CPs, DP, and DMs)!

Be Sociable, Share!
