Staff Editorial: Commencement is what you make it

It’s that time again.

With the culture of critique that exists at GW, it’s no surprise that the selection of a Commencement speaker is always a point of controversy. But this weekend is about one thing only – the graduates.

It is inevitable that you won’t enjoy some of the festivities, speakers, or choices made by the University in planning this event. Needless to say, catering to the wishes of thousands of graduates and their expectant families can be a difficult task to manage.

So put aside the Colonial mentality of questioning everything the University does and just let the weekend sink in. You’ll be happier for it.
