Thankfully, both of my daughters have graduated from high school and college. We have even celebrated my own degree, earned later in life. So graduation celebrations are no stranger to our family. Celebrating graduations has an ancient history, according to Melanie Coleman at The Daily Universe. The practice of scrawling a record of your degree on a piece of sheepskin actually dates to early Islam. As far back as 1432 at Oxford University, graduates were each required to give a sermon in Latin as part of the graduation ritual. Ceremonies at schools today are not quite as strenuous or involved. Actually, with the large class sizes of today, it has become quite impersonal. The graduate gets a few seconds of attention as they race across the stage before the next name is called. This lack of individual acknowledgment of your accomplishments has led many to host celebrations of their own.
Space to celebrate your achievements
Have you decided that your loved one or yourself deserves a little more attention and appreciation for your academic achievements? Today, many homes have gotten smaller and trying to keep graduation celebrations small and in the family living room is almost impossible. If you live in Las Vegas, the backyard isn’t likely to be a large, cool, inviting oasis either. Hotel meeting rooms and restaurants don’t allow for the personal touch either.
So, if this sounds like you The Beacon Center is here to help. With our 1300 square foot venue, we have plenty of space and amenities to make your graduation celebration extra special. We LOVE graduates and we want you back again and again. Imagine not worrying about cleaning house, guests parking in the neighbor’s driveway or locking up the family dog.
