Of to a Fancy Dress party...
Chris: Graduation week by my ex employer
An orderly procession
Chris: An annual event in the city Elizabeth: graduation week
On dirait des étudiants avec leurs coiffures.
Chris: University staff, mostly academic, Martine
Très serieux ce défilé...sourires !
Chris: The culmination of the academic year Claudine
Knowledge processing...
Chris: Yes indeed Larry. During my latter working life I was involved in this annual pantomime

Immediately I thought of Bath University and their old rituals, now I have just read your comment on Ray's words - what does mean the duster carried by the only lady?
Chris: She is wearing white kid gloves and carrying the university's ceremonial mace
How it was done before computers smile
Chris: And still done now too!
Did they have a golden carriage for the Vice-chancellor?
Chris: Of course

Such traditions provoked the students' revolution in 1968, too - but not in GB. "Weg mit dem Muff von tausend Jahren unter den Talaren!"
Chris: We are a conservative nation and love tradition

Chris: Show some respect!
I suppose they check out the mace carrier for mental illness these days.
Chris: She's quite sane

That time of year for awarding degrees. No doubt an Honours degree fo those students that can spell their name correctly on the exam paper. Was the Vice-Chancellor carried in a sedan chair?
Chris: They never gave me a degree!
