SWOD (Song of the Day/Word of the Day) #19: Matriculate

11 May

Today’s Word:

YES! A degree...Now what?

Matriculate (Verb): To enroll in a college or university as a candidate for a degree.

Musical Example: A timely SWOD. Let me offer a big congratulations to the graduating class at Binghamton University and all other universities. I will be donning the gown and cap next year. Students matriculated some years ago and after changing both physically and mentally now will enter graduate school or…gasp…the real world. Give it a few years and we will all be pondering where college went. Well, as Leslie Hartley said, “The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.” I always thought this was a telling quotation. So, to all graduates, good luck on your continuing journey down that narrow river of passing time. Hopefully you will all be able to accomplish what you have set out to achieve.

There are many songs about college days. But, I thought I would go a little unconventional today. Instead of entertaining you all with song, let’s go to some musical comedy. “Whose Line is it Anyway,” one of the funniest, nonsensical shows on television, has a great skit satirizing Time life CD Infomercials.  This is the “Greatest Hits of College”
