Rhetorical Graduation Question
I've never earned a degree before, so the procedures are fairly new to me.
Lane community college has already announced [and changed] the date for students to "walk" to receive their degree.
So far, I have not heard any requirements for attending this event other than paying your $25 for your certificate.
So one question comes to mind... it is ASSUMED that students will be required to wear the traditional Cap and gown.
so being the type of person over analyzes everything... I'm just curious if you showed up in normal street clothes if you would still be allowed to participate?
admittedly, I have not done any real research on this question other than the fact that they tell you where you can purchase graduation supplies LCC bookstore
Now before you lecture me on the traditional roles etc. etc., I just asked the question out of mere curiosity.
by the way,
graduation ceremonies will take place the Saturday following finals week on 4 p.m. Saturday June 10, 2006 at the Lane County Fairgrounds in Downtown Eugene
I have already heard grumblings from students that they are doing this DURING finals week. I will agree it is kind of stupid!
