I was looking at my uncle's diploma the other day, and at first I couldn't tell what I was looking at. The only thing I could read was his name, because apparently they printed the rest of it in Latin.
My first thought was, "how elite can you get, printing something in an extinct language that normal people can't read."
I meant to ask him why, but it slipped my mind.
Furthermore, why does it say "veritas" on the little shield in the top left corner? Doesn't verity mean truth? (Is that Harvard's motto or something?)
