Is it possible that we will move to Pennsylvania? That is the current question of the hour. I just got back from an interview at a small, Catholic liberal arts college in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I think that it went well. So we begin to comtimplate what it would mean to move there. The biggest concern in my mind … what will Bear do if we move there??
Well … it has been a long road. One that began even before I joined the University of Texas but today, after 8 1/2 years, I completed my degree requirements. As many of you know, back in October I had my oral exam and was thrilled to get all my signatures. It has taken some more work but today I walked across campus with my paperwork and made it all official. It took about 20 minutes and I only forgot one form (fortunately they had extras). Got the email confirmation. Now … let’s see how long it will take to sink in.
So graduation is in May. I will definitely be doing the walk. Graduation weekend is May 21-24, with the University-wide graduation on the Saturday. Further details are not yet know. The picture shows UT’s official regalia … we’ll have to see if I want to buy the regalia or rent (rentals are black).
Does anybody know what the staff is for?
p.s. … no that’s not me in the picture 😉
