You are cordially invited to this installment in the Notes series. Please, don't bring any tissues... you won't need them. However, please bring your appetite for comedy as Jane O'Henry goes down the memory lane of graduations. Are you worried that you're going to throw up if you hear the infamous graduation theme one more time? Well, your pain is felt, so this book does not play the theme. Prepare yourself for stories of very well-done hamburgers, secretly engaged graduates and all of the other comedic hassles that come with graduation. Also, you technically get two novels for the price of one. Laugh, but don't cry, (if you do, you need to relearn what comedy is ), as Jane recalls the graduations of her sister Gail as well. (Side note: If you must feel that you need to hear the graduation song while reading this novel, you can play it yourself while you read.) See, this novel offers something for everyone...

Higher Education on a global basis is now facing a great issue. In order to help students in a competitive global market, universities need to become more teaching-and-learning-centered and develop more internationalized curricula.

It will help readers understand not only how student learning outcomes can be measured, but why universities throughout the world must continually strive to become world-class institutions.
