Baccalaureate Service 2012

In the United States, colleges and universities hold a baccalaureate service to honor the graduating class. It is more for the seniors receiving their degrees than for the graduate students. However, any graduating student is welcome to attend, and several of us who will receive our advanced degrees tomorrow took in the service Saturday afternoon.

Katy and Anita. We had a class together.


An interpretative dance left me speechless
and near tears.

One of the student speakers talked about the "bubble" that Hollins creates. My husband told me after the service that he had heard me say the same thing many times. Hollins is a nurturing and safe place for women, a place where a girl can grow and find herself, returning to the world a brave and strong woman. I will miss that shelter.
