Off the cuff of glory

The Gazette took a quick survey of graduates as they walked off the stage at Tuesday's Convocation ceremony. The gods of academia were smiling – almost every graduate could spell "Convocation" correctly. On an interesting side note, exactly 50 per cent of graduates said they had to go to the washroom when asked "How do you feel?"

Do you have a job yet?
"I'm actually working for Bell in a job I'm not qualified for. But I am, because I'm a thinker, right?"
Master of Arts graduate Pete Morra.

Spell "convocation."
Morra. He was joking – we hope.

What are you wearing under that robe?
"Not much."
Haley Gudat, Bachelor of arts in English and political science.

"A tie."
Craig Lawrence, bachelor of arts in English and media, information and technoculture.

"You tell me."
Paul Desjardins, bachelor of arts in English. – after flashing the reporter.

What was the "drunkest" moment of your academic career?
"Frosh week."
