Father's Day - Tribute to My Dad

Dad putting


Dads who are there for us deserve a lot of praise on Father’s Day or any day. Those who help by reading a story and putting their children to bed or who play with their kids, have conversations, help them when they are sick, watch a movie (whether scoring high on Rotten Tomatoes or not), discuss schoolwork, and devote time to choosing a college, and giving other support as they become adults, and beyond that…those are the dads I’m talking about. That is how my dad has always been.

Artwork Captures College Buildings in Diploma Frames, and it's Personal

Hartwick College Campus Cameo Diploma Frame
When I’ve visited my sons’ colleges, Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, and Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin, I noticed that certain campus buildings stood out to me. Maybe you have experienced this too. 

Buildings that look like they’ve been part of a campus for a long time have a lot of character and an interesting past.

Colgate University Bookstore Staff photo
Colgate Bookstore in upstate New York is not what you’d expect from a University bookstore. The staff not only serves its Colgate University students and campus employees, but the store also is a fun place for the whole community. Yes, there are diploma frames and other normal college items available for students and alumni, but there’s so much more…

Covered Bridge Resonates with Messiah College Students, Alumni, & Staff

Messiah College Stoner BridgeA well-loved, much used way for students, alumni, staff, and others to get around Messiah College’s Pennsylvania campus is their own historic covered bridge, built in 1867. This iconic structure, unusual for a college campus is a popular image that graces two of their diploma frames.

Messiah College’s covered bridge, commonly called the Stoner Bridge (named in honor of Mr. & Mrs. Jacob S. Stoner who donated the bridge  to the college), but also known as the Bowmansdale Covered Bridge, is one of only a handful of covered bridges actually located on college campuses in the United States.

Wabash College Still Has Sheepskin Diplomas and Other Interesting Info

Sheepskin diplomas are not prevalent at all, although they once were. Yet, for Wabash College in Indiana, the tradition of giving sheepskin diplomas to its graduates continues. This coming May will be no exception. At the college’s 176th Commencement ceremony last May, its 172 graduates received sheepskin diplomas, as always. The college also carries on its tradition as an all-male college.



Inspiration from Colleges & Universities in the New Year

Among your family and friends, what Veterans do you know and honor?

In mine, there are quite a few.  One in particular is a family man, married at 22 on August 24, 1947, after World War II to his 18-year-old Brooklyn neighborhood love, Vivian.

German Mottos a Novelty at Stanford University and Worcester Polytechnic Institute

 
Germany has been in the news: winner of the FIFA World Cup, Nico Rosberg’s win in the German Grand Prix, the “go to” place for foreign students to attend college, and the start of Oktoberfest (September 20 through October 5), to name a few. There’s also this…the discovery of a couple of American colleges with German mottos.
