Numerous events have occurred this past month to mark the end of this academic year: from the End of Year festivals to Mercatorstrasse, and not forgetting the graduation ceremony of our very own class of 2013. Streamed live on our website, the ceremony could be viewed from all over the world. Students marched into the hall immaculately dressed in their blue academic regalia. Robin Njenga (Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Class of 2013) the undergraduate valedictorian gave an impressive speech remarking on her appreciation for the unique Jacobian experience and encouraged her fellow graduating class to ‘go out there and make (their) dreams a reality’.
The commencement ceremony was then followed by photo shoots around the campus and a graduation ball later on in the evening.
