Elaine? Nope, sorry, this isn’t a post about the movie version of “The Graduate,” this is a post about the true life version of “The Graduate: Bates College Edition.” It’s coming up, believe it or not, graduation at Bates is a little over a week away. The school is slowly starting to prepare for the big day and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the approaching day.
Bates has some pretty interesting traditions, not really surprising, concerning graduation and graduation weekend. Lots of costumes, lots of all nighters and lots of parents. I’m not really sure what this post is about seeing as I’m not really sure how I feel about the upcoming day. I guess I’ll have to update you on the details as the day approaches and flies by this next week.
For those of you dear readers of Hart Beat, Bates has an open graduation and all are welcome. To entice you even more our commencement speakers this year are none other than Robert De Niro, Gwen Ifill and Bonnie Bassler. I think May 27th is set to be a pretty good day. Hasta luego Hart Beat.
