    Graduation

    Yaay - I've graduated!

    Fondest memory: Though I finished my studies here in October '02, it wasn't until recently (May '03) that the ceremony took place. Oxford is in many ways a traditional University, and nowhere is this more reflected than in the graduation. The ceremony has changed little down the centuries, what with the Latin, bible-tapping, different color robes for different degrees, rules governing who wears hats, etc, - all very solemn! All in all, though I felt it was a bit too ceremonial, I did enjoy it. Graduation is held in the Sheldonian theatre - one of Oxford's nicest buildings.
