Signs of the times


All over campus, graduates are posing before iconic objects, talking to parents, twiddling with tassels and hats and looking kind of stunned.

I’ve been impatient – dodging around them as they stand in the middle of the sidewalk while their parents think about lunch, or where they parked the car, of how much their feet are hurting as they trail abotu the campus. Today I had to walk down to the main library, though, and the sight of this recent PhD posing for her parents made me smile.

It’s quite an accomplishment!
