By CTW Team
In light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the University has announced that it will carry out its 42nd Commencement ceremony virtually, in keeping with the Government’s measures to curtail the spread of the virus.
In the statement to the graduating class, the registrar noted that the University was keen to celebrate this milestone, despite the ongoing pandemic.
“We understand that many of you may feel disappointed that you have to graduate in a virtual ceremony, but this year has been particularly challenging due to the ongoing pandemic. To ensure your health and safety, as well as those of your loved ones and that of the entire University community, our commencement ceremony will be held virtually this year,” the statement said.
“The ceremony will be held on Saturday, 26 September, and all members of the graduating class have been duly notified. Should you have any concerns, feel free to reach out on email@example.com ,” it added.
Last year’s commencement ceremony saw 1,340 students graduate across various programs, and included 948 undergraduate students, 373 graduate students and 19 Doctorate students.
The University will continue to provide updates on this as more preparations are made.
