My sister just graduated and I was amazed at how many parents and students working part-time and full-time were there (they had people stand). Congratulations on getting your students through! Most of my academic success can be attributed to the instructors that have supported and inspired me. :)

Some degrees don't build knowledge. Some students I talked to who were getting degrees in social work said they never go to class and always pass the exams since they ask questions like "how does (blank) make you feel?" They said the hardest part of their degrees was 400 hours community service. Other online degrees have all the answers posted online. I'm saying I'm proud of all those who will improve society with the knowledge they gained through integrity and perseverance.

mrbob, don't let a few bad apples spoil the bunch. We need the humanizing effects of the humanities...a knowledgable, wise populace makes the best kind a society. [Most people i met who majored in social work/studies are kind, productive people, who work hard to improve society, full of ''knowledge,integrity and perseverance''.] Wasn't it mainly the short-sighted, greedy, sociopathic bankers and people on wall street that ruined the whole economy?
