In a graduation ceremony, the students dress up in special graduation caps and clothing that are made just for this purpose. It’s graduation season, which means that college students everywhere are getting a heavy dose of advice for finding their passions, chasing success, and thriving in the real world.Graduation day is a roller coaster of emotions for grads and their families alike. It’s a moment of celebration, achievement, hope for the future and reflection on the past.
