Graduation: The other side of the fence

Last September it was my turn to graduate with the PhD at the University’s spring graduation. Last Wednesday I was on the other side of the fence, participating not as a graduand, but instead as faculty. Quite a different experience, from carrying the Theology banner through the streets at the head of the Theology students, through to being an academic marshall at the ceremony, and watching the students get capped from ‘on stage’ rather than in the audience.

All in all, a good (though different) kind of day.


  1. Time flies, eh! Glad your enjoying your new role!
