Today I’m graduating with a Master’s degree in Applied Educational Psychology and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in School Psychology. Normally, I would have been planning my outfit for weeks, but I don’t really have a choice today. I’ll be drowning in a polyester robe and a silly hat. Oh yeah, and a carolina blue hood….not my best color.
But, today’s outfit is not really about looks – it’s about what the attire represents. Apparently, the master’s robe has subtle differences from the bachelors robe, such as oblong sleeves that are open at the wrists. And the hood lets others know what my future trade will be. Plus, the look was probably in style in 1500 when the academic dress was designed to be more comfortable for university men. I like comfortable.
No matter what I’m wearing today, I’ll definitely be celebrating in style:)
