i am an octoberian, and in our school there's no graduation march during october so we have to wait until march to attend it. i was studying far from our home, so i wasn't able to attend my graduation in college because i already have worked in our town and i've got no interested to it at all. but now, i missed it, i regret for not having attended it. that is just once in a lifetime celebration but i missed it. now i'm taking up masteral and someday when i'm going to graduate, i will really attend my graduation, no matter what happens.

I did, and I really wanted to. My family didn't come to my high school graduation. And I really wanted them to atleast attend my college graduation and they did. It was a very important and emotion time. It is very important to me and hope everyone else that family must be where your at, at the most happiest moments of your life. We must all agree to that.

Hmm... that's too bad... graduation gives your education a final ending; much like the frosting on a cake... but that's okay... I'm happy that you're planning to attend your masteral graduation... Hmmm... for me, I attended my college graduation!! =) It was fun, it was kind of messy, it was memorable, it was a happy day, and it was a saaadd day... sad, because I knew that I wouldn't be seeing most of my schoolmates for a LONG, LONG, long time... maybe I wouldn't be seeing anyone of them at all!! So that's kind of sad for me... Wow, talking about this has made me miss my college graduation a lot.. Oh, my.. the fun that we had!! I happened to belong to the school of nursing, so everytime a clinical instructor of ours was awarded something, we would all applaud as hard as we could!! Hahaha!! We didn't mind the stares of the other schools--we were having soo much fun, and besides, it's the last day that we got to get together and do a little mischief!! I think it was also during graduation that a lot of photos were taken... and it's when you often realize that you're going to be missing a lot of things... it's when you often realize how valuable other people have been to you.. when you realize that you've got to apologize for all those offenses you've committed to others or you'll never get a chance to say those apologies at all... Have a wonderful time mylotting!! and I do hope you get to your masteral graduation... God bless you!!

Yes, I have attended our graduation ceremony last March 2007. I was really glad that I was able to make it on time, that I was almost late. You should have attended yours too, it's a very special occasion for every student.

I attended all of my graduations: kinder, elementary, high school, and college. But I think it wouldn't have been a bid deal if I hadn't. The important thing is that I graduated. I mainly attended my graduations because my parents expected me to attend and because they were really fun. But if I hadn't been able to attend one of my graduations I wouldn't regret it.

I remembered those days of graduation practice,but the ceremony was not much impressed.In line to receive a diploma and graduation report the distribution of a letter of introduction,the noisy hall.College students were from all corners of the country,there is no parents to attend our graduation ceremony.Means to get our diploma will be rushed to our work place and start a new life.I have already graduated from university for 20 years.

I attended my college graduation but i am not excited of it before it happened to be the day of our graduation. I never joined the graduation practice even once because that time i am not really sure if i graduate. I am still in the process of submission of my requirements for me to be eligible to graduate, and until the last minute i am not sure, because i need one instructor signature and result of my final grade but unfortunately i haven't finish this. When i look up for the students that were eligible to graduate i saw my name, and i was surprised, no excitement and let it just an ordinary day in my life. I attended it with my mother and one guardian and i missed the mass, i came on the graduation venue after all have been done the March and it was already calling of the rooster of graduate to receive certificate when i arrived in the graduation venue.

I attended my junior college graduation. I didn't graduate from senior college, though. I dropped out after my first quarter up there. I wish now that I had stayed and tried to finish. I liked the shcool and everything but I was having a lot of personal problems. Kathy.

Yeah i did attend the graduation ceremony. I think it's something i couldn't afford to miss. The years i've spent in college were results of hard work so i guess i deserve some recognition even just to receive that diploma on stage. For some it may be meaningless but for me it's symbolical of my achievement. It's still one of the best feeling for me up to now.

I did and it was one of the greatest moment in my life. I am a workign student, I work in daytime and went to school in the afternoon. I really struggle to finished my education on my own and I can't afford to missed my graduation ceremony because of that. It's very memorable, I was abit emotional since I am part of the honor roll inspite of my busy schedule I made it. I am also persuing my master's degree rigth now and I hope you will attend your masteral ceremony because as what you have said it is only once in a lifetime and it is time for celebration. Time to celebrate the hardwork and pressure from school works.

I did go to my graduation, but it wasn't too special as it was held in a gym and the few that were graduating with my degree I had no idea who they were.
