Graduation marks a milepost in the lives of student. It’s a serious yet joyful event. And therein lies the conundrum: Do we show our pride in the graduate with air horns and beach balls? Or do we show respect in somber silence? The answer lies somewhere in the middle. Consider these questions as you decide how you’ll demonstrate your excitement for your graduate:
