More of Hull’s finest

Here’s another picture of Hull’s finest, which was taken at this year’s graduation ceremony.  It shows me with two British Politics and Legislative Studies graduates, Helen Le Caplain on the left and Emma Kinloch on the right. 

We are stood outside the marquee that we use each year for the degree day.  After the formal ceremony in Hull City Hall, we hold a reception for politics graduates and their families and friends.  We have a marquee for the purpose, which is erected at the university on the lawn by the Wilberforce Building where the Politics Department is housed. 

The idea to utilise a marquee was one that I had back in the 1990s and it is something we have maintained ever since.  It is an opportunity for parents to meet members of staff and for students and staff to bid farewell to one another.  And, of course, to take photographs.

Talking of photographs, I have now discovered that I have one of the BPLS graduating class of 1996…

    Lord Norton,
    It is wonderful to be part of the lives of so many reaching a mature undertanding and professional orientation in their lives. Must make Lords more pleasant with these fresh faces and voices around as well. One of my nurses (in the British sense) used to accuse me of being old when I was tiny lad. Perhaps this was damaging aand unfair but it is true I appreciate youth itself in others more than many my age do. After all if my nurse was right I have been “old” about as long as the average centenarian by most standards.

    Lord Norton,
    This would then make it harder to say who had the greater metaphorical age. “Metaphorical age” may be a phrase I have never read or writtne before.
