As Graduation season is in full swing, we note a few things that are guaranteed to happen on your graduation day… via giphy.com
You’ll spend hours deliberating over your outfit
Buying the perfect dress or a nice new suit ready for the moment you accept your degree and kiss goodbye to life at University.
You’ll cover that outfit in your cap and gown
Once you don the enormous cape that is your graduation gown you’ll realise you didn’t need to stress so much about your outfit.
You’ll hear a lot of speeches
Weddings will seem like a breeze after today, as you’re guaranteed to hear a LOT of speeches from University staff you’ve never ever heard of.
You might see a celebrity
Occasionally celebrities receive honorary degrees – for example Ed Sheeran collected an honorary doctorate from University Campus Suffolk and Ryan Giggs collected his from University of Bolton! Get your iPhones ready to snap any potential celebs collecting theirs!
You’ll panic about messing up
Tripping up onto the stage, shaking the wrong hand, with all eyes on you it’s hard not to panic about messing up even the most normal of tasks!
You’ll make everyone proud
Your lecturers, your friends and ESPECIALLY you’re family. Be prepared to make people cry.
Your hat throw will disappoint
It looks so good in the movies, but you’ll soon find that mortarboard does not comply as well as you like around the time it lands half way across the road on some poor unsuspecting student!
You’ll overdose on selfies
Snapchat stories and Instagram feeds will soon fill up with all of your graduation slefies.
You’ll realise the graduation photo is a fake
You’ll probably take this in the University sports hall, collecting your cap and gown, holding a FAKE scroll hours before you collect the real thing.
Most likely with your university pals, at one of your old student haunts, with a lot of shots!
