Shizz, I just realized that batchelors party is not a celebration of your batchelors degree.

I wish you the very best.

I never knew the root of the academic term before.

Quote:
The term bachelor in the 12th century referred to a knight bachelor, who was too young or poor to gather vassals under his own banner. By the end of the 13th century, it was also used by junior members of guilds or universities. By folk etymology or wordplay, the word baccalaureus came to be associated with bacca lauri ("laurel berry") in reference to laurels being awarded for academic success or honours.
Apparently Bachelor also was used to mean a man of lowly status; so low that they weren't marriage material. Now it means an unmarried male. Seems the terms developed from a common root.
