Note of Interest: U of T's convocation ceremonies take place in Convocation Hall, which is actually considerably grander than panel 1 indicates. Some poor undergrads have classes in Con Hall. We're talking classes with a thousand people in them. *Shudder*

Panel 1: At U of T's Convocation Hall, the convocation ceremony is underway. Graduands line up, waiting for their time on stage as crowds of friends and relatives watch.

Panel 2: Out in the foyer after having convocated, Barbara approaches Casey.

Barbara: Ten seconds shaking hands with people in silly hats, and it's all over.

Casey: Aren't you going back to your seat?

Panel 3:

Barbara: Yes. I was just taking a moment to let it all sink in.

Panel 4: They head back into the hall.

Casey: You mean the fact that you have the right to wear a silly hat now?

Barbara: You're really beginning to get me.

Alt-Text: Unfortunately, the U of T doctoral hat is less silly than most; it's just a mortarboard with a red tassel, and it's not even part of the outfit new Ph.D.s wear to convocation.
