You have finally finished your final lap in campus and undergone the necessary clearance process. What is now left is for you to present yourself to the graduation square an graduation day. You are obviously super excited about it and have been counting days. Slowly Months turn to weeks then to days and finally rehearsal day. How do you prepare for that day if your home is far away? Here is how;
Get a place where you will spend the night
Let a close friend/family member in the nearest town host you.
You might not like the idea but it’s the best option in this case. The place they are staying should be close enough to get to the graduation venue on time. Inform them in good time like a month earlier so that they can include you in their plans. Do not ambush them last minute least you get the shock of your life when they turn your request down and end up having bad relations.
If you have no relative then work on getting a room in a hotel in good time since they tend to be fully booked as graduation nears.
Make sure your guests are well received
Make sure your phone is fully charged since you will be receiving many calls on that day. And since you will be at the graduation square most of the time, get a friend/family member who could help you receive your guests. That way they won’t feel stranded since they have travelled far to be with you. Ensure they get invitation cards on time so that they can access the venue. You can also advise them on the importance of time management.
Have a refreshments place in mind.
As much as your guests will support you with the bill, you need to find a readily available place where you will be able to refresh. Arrive two days or atleast a day earlier and roam around the place and get to know eating joints. It doesn’t have to be nearest to the Campus but close enough since you will all be hungry. If you can find an outside caterer, the better. But consider the cost too, you don’t want people to be worrying too much about the bill when they should be enjoying.
