Graduation is getting a diploma or academic degree or the ceremony that is sometimes associated, in which students become graduates. Before the ceremony, candidates are referred to as graduands. The date of graduation is often called graduation day. The ceremony itself is also called commencement, convocation or invocation.
In the United States and Canada, the term is additionally increasingly being used to refer to the advancement from a primary or secondary school level. When ceremonies are associated, they usually include a procession of the academic staff and candidates and a valediction. At the college and university level the faculty will usually wear academic dress at the formal ceremonies, as will the trustees and degree candidates.
Planning the Graduation Party
In some places, parties to celebrate graduation from school, college or university are popular. Celebrating your child’s graduation is important and exciting, and it can be expensive. It may be the second most important party you throw for them. (We’ll assume the wedding will really be a show!)
