Bermuda College to hold in-person commencement
Bermuda College is to host its Spring Commencement Ceremony on Thursday.
During the ceremony, 93 students will receive associate degrees, diplomas or certificates.
It will be hosted under the tent on the college’s athletics field and is the first annual commencement ceremony to be held in person at the college since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
Dr Duranda Greene, college president, said “Despite the challenges of the last two years these graduates have persevered to make it to this milestone. Kudos to each of them.
“Our graduation numbers are slightly higher than last year’s and we’re also celebrating a few milestones. We have our first graduate from our Associate in Science (Pre-Med) who is a dual enrolment student.
“We have a 16-year-old dual enrolment student graduating with his Associate in Actuarial Science who will be transferring with advanced standing to St John’s University.
“And then there is the non-traditional student who has fought incredible odds to stay on track to receive her associate in nursing degree.
“These are just a few of the inspiring stories in the Class of 2022. Their success and that of all our graduates is a strong testament to the dedication of our faculty and staff who have worked with the students to get them to this days.”
The Associate of Arts (Business Administration) programme has produced 22 graduates, again dominating the associate degree programmes while there are seven graduates are dual enrolment students who will be awarded associate degrees or certificates, prior to receiving their high school graduation certificates in June.
There are six students graduating from the Mount Saint Vincent Bachelors in Business Administration programme; three will be graduated from Miami University’s Master’s programme in Special Education.
The ceremony will be live streamed on CITV from 2:30pm. Details are available at www.college.bm.
