He is graduating today with TWO Bachelor's degrees...English and French!

He is graduating today Cum Laude!

He is graduating today as a McNair Scholar!

He is graduating today with a GPA close to 4.0 in both of his majors (English & French) !

He is graduating today with 3 Independent Research Papers under his belt already...the kind of thing you are expected to complete at least one of in grad. school!

He is graduating today having presented those Research Papers at 3 International Conferences!
