Today we attended Carl's Graduation Ceremony at Middlesex University, Hendon Campus. It was a great day! We decided to travel by train as parking was an issue, so we left from St Albans Station at around 11am. We arrived in Hendon and caught a cab to the Campus, where we joined a huge long queue waiting to register. There were three Graduations planned for today, we were on the middle one so there were still people left over from the first one milling around.
Carl went to the robing room and came out all set up with his gown and mortar board.
In the presentation marquee we were shown to our seats, a quick look at the brochure and a look around the hall we realised that there were around 400 graduates plus two guests for each graduate so it was pretty packed. We had quite reasonable seats and were so proud when he went up to collect his Bachelor of Arts degree.
All the way through all I could think about was Harry Potter and Hogwarts!! It just looked as if we had walked into the set of the film!
Congratulation Becky and Carl, two Nicky B graduates!!!
The surroundings were lovely, but the quadrangle where we were in the above photo was like a green house, glass roof and lots of people, it was melt down time.
Once we got home we gave Carl a little present to commemorate the day.
