Commencement is an another word for graduation which refers to a ceremony someone would be bound to attend after he or she finishes their entire school work(or after they did a certain required amount of work as to do so) before going out into the society(or move ahead in order to recieve more advanced education)
"Man....never thought I can get this far...
I mean, it's hard to believe....
that my school life is...finally OVER."

"Need not to worry about it for now, as the word tells,

'Commencement' might indicate the end of your school life

but it also contains the definition of 'the beginning'.

It's too soon to say that it's over,

YET."

Usually a waste of time. Dumb celebration of working hard for sheepskin, where you don't know if you or the person sitting next to you will make much of it.

Someone, I don't even respect very much
