I’ve written quite a few graduation stories as a part of the Temple Liberal Arts marketing and communications team. This year, I got to write about myself!
In January of 2000, my family and I traveled to Philadelphia from the Poconos to attend my father’s graduation from Temple with his PhD in history. I was 13. The building, Mitten Hall, looked like a castle.
Last week, we attended that ceremony in Mitten Hall once again. This time, at 31, I was the doctoral graduate (English though–sorry, dad).
