diploma display

Congrats to EcoGeoFemme for recently receiving her diploma.

I got my diploma several months after I finished all my degree requirements. I got the fancy frame for it (actually, that was my parents' graduation present) and hung it in a place of honor in my office.

I was debating adding my undergraduate diploma to my collection, but my undergraduate institution has the world's largest diplomas. It's completely ridiculous. So I just have the grad degree hanging up.

Do you have any degrees used as decoration in your office? Or do you think it looks a little silly/pretentious?

I haven't decided what to do with it yet. I might hang it in my office at work, unless EGM wants to put both of ours someplace together at home. Like you, I want to frame my undergrad one while I'm at it.

I think mine are in plastic sleeves inside archival-type albums or books - or maybe just in file folders! I've never hung them in an office - it hasn't seemed that popular in the industry I work in (maybe unless one has a Ph.D).

Mine are each on a plain white A4 sheet of paper with stuff printed on it in a dull (and slightly crooked) font with a stamp and a signature at the bottom. When I had to submit them for proof of my qualifications to a foreign government, they were sent back with, "No, we mean the real ones." Ironically, I went to one of the most prestigious universities in the world, and my diplomas look like they were forged by a twelve-year-old on Microsoft Word. No frames for me!
