Another mark in unwinding my MBA experience at George Washington University School of Business: last Friday, May 18, I was at the GWSB Commencement Ceremony. The spirit of the event was very celebratory. Seeing all my fellow classmates the last (but one) time coming together was very special. For me the Commencement celebration was the first of this kind, as we did not have these elaborate ceremony in my undergraduate time and country.
Incidentally, the day of my GWSB Commencement was also a Prom day for my older daughter. So after my Commencement we took her to the restaurant where she had a pre-Prom dinner with her classmates. I was still wearing my gown, hood and cap on the way to the restaurant. What an irony: two grads, father and daughter :-).
There is really not much to say, though, because it is hard to relay the level of emotions and exuberance that was flowing among my fellow graduates. If I manage to find the script of the Commencement speaker, I will add a few quotes later, as there were some good things that rang a bell for me personally. So I will just post a few pictures from the Commencement Ceremony at George Washington School of Business-2012.
There will be another post with pictures from the George Washington University-wide Commencement Ceremony that took place on Sunday on the National Mall.
