Rhimes: USC Honorary Doctoral Candidate

at . Comments

The alumni, faculty, and students of University of Southern California have begun the nomination process for honorary degree candidates for the 2007 commencement ceremony. USC is one of the most culturally diverse universities in America and home to its oldest, most reputable cinema school.

The school asserts, “in bestowing an honorary doctoral degree, a university makes an explicit statement to its students and the world about the qualities of character and attainment it admires most.”

Representing these attributes, USC alumna and Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes makes an exceptional candidate for a Doctorate in Fine Arts at the University of Southern California for 2007.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
