    Just the Pinning, that seems like the best GRADUATION to me.

    lesile, i can't believe it is almost here myself.

    i am finding it so hard to stay focus with studying with all that has to be done between now and graduation. prayerfully, i can stay on track.

    I'm going to both the pinning and graduation ceremonies. I can not wait !! I think it will be hard to keep from crying through both. There were times I wanted to give up but to attend both is like a reward for not doing so. Anyway, CONGRATS :hatparty: to everyone graduating!

    Anyone going to have a graduation party? I don't graduate until next year, but I want a party! I know its kind of silly (I'm 35), but I going to be the first in my family to graduate from college. I don't want gifts, I just want to share the happy event with everyone who has supported me. My husband thinks I'm daft for even wanting one.

    Berta - not daft at all - very proud of an accomplishment! Congrats. I graduated from an ADN program when I was 35 and declined to go to pinning or graduation and now sorta regret it.!

    I am going to both the pinning and graduation ceremony. My parents are flying 1000 miles to be here so they want to see everything.

    I will be going to both! I have worked hard for my nursing degree, but I also worked hard at all the other classes!! In my case, this is my 1st degree, and there's nothing like your 1st college graduation!
