Re: Graduated... or graduated from?
Is this simply a matter of taste and style?
Definitely, and it's tricky in that _some_ ears hear _some_ forms as snooty, where others think "graduate(d)" is code for "just barely passed."
You can defuse that a little by avoiding verbal forms.
"... a graduate of Schmidlap College ..."
"... a Schmidlap College graduate ..."
Not an ideal economy of words, but "graduate(d)", the verb, is a little loaded.
