High School Graduate
Claims Oauchita Baptist University as “alma mater”.
My son attended the same university, but does not claim alma mater status because he was not awarded a degree. Sarah attended but did not receive an degree.
Those of us who actually delayed instant gratification to plow through our studies and receive a degree honor the concept of an alma mater. Those who have not received a degree and are fast and loose with the term are being a bit dishonest regarding how others might regard them.
