    Default So where did you hang your degree?

    Mine arrived today from COSC. It proudly states that I hold a "Bachelor of Science, together with all the rights, honors, and privileges pertaining thereto". For Christmas my family purchased the official COSC frame to display it in......and I don't know where to put it. Is there etiquette on this? Be silly in the living room, out of place in the bedroom, I don't have a home office. It would be funny if after all the effort earning the thing I just stick it in a drawer with my HS Diploma!

    I did go down and make some quality black and white copies on card stock. I matted and framed a copy for my parents (they earned it by paying for the first couple of years and I did promise to get it). I plan to mat and frame another copy for the wall at work...that way if I get fired I can just walk out and tell them to keep it...lol!

    So where do you guys display your degree's?

    Well, I have my original hanging in my office at work. I'm thinking about getting the EC frame for it, because I just have it in a regular frame. I also have a nice quality copy hanging in my basement home office. Do you have a place at work to hang it? If not what about a man-cave? At least you have a problem such as this. It is better to have an issue of where to hang your degree rather not having a degree!

    A hall or stairway among the family photos?

    I don't think it out of place in the living room, pending the type of frame.

    But then again, I'm married to a Texan.

    Which means a copy of his birth certificate in 2x2 foot deminsion is hanging in our living room.

    Upon receipt I scanned them along with transcript into a pdf file and filed originals but I'm older so they were only for box checking. I prefer art on my walls.

    Home office. I think a hallway might be a good place for it. I wouldn't have it at work unless I had a real office with a door. It would look funny hanging from my cube wall

    Well, it hangs in the bedroom sort of above my chest of drawers for now.

    I have sort of a quasi cubicle at work....but I'm gonna hang it up anyway on one of my 2 walls. We are being acquired by a larger organization and I want the new people to see it...haha.
