2018 Graduation Gift Guide

Hey friends! It’s one of my favorite times of year – graduation! Attending the ceremony as a faculty member is my absolute favorite job requirement and I look forward to the May date all year long. Later this month, I’m going to share a post about what I would have told myself at my own college graduation, now that it’s been 10 years! But today, I’m excited to share a graduation gift guide for the rising #girlboss or #phdiva in your life.
