Commencement, quick and easy

Posted by seanho on Sat 26 April 2008

This is now my third time at TWU's commencement convocations, sitting in the choir loft at Abbotsford Pentecostal, and somehow once again I'm sitting in the front row, smack in the middle -- so I can't yawn, or pick my nose, or anything! :) Up front is TWU president Dr. Jonathan Raymond.

Due to space and time limitations, TWU's commencement is always split into three ceremonies, divided by faculty. Our department of Mathematical Sciences (including math, computing science, and physics) doesn't usually see a lot of graduates -- this year, only a couple computing science, and no math grads (we did have several math grads last year). But I do get to teach the stats class for nursing, so I got to see a number of my nursing students graduate.

It's always fun to cheer on students and send them off into the wide world, wherever God takes them next! Still, today I was rather tired, and glad just to be done with all the "pomp and circumstance"!
