Commencement 2020

Bobby Dodd Stadium, USA - December 12, 2020
Surprisingly, even though it marks the end of college, the graduation ceremony in the USA is called commencement, because it marks the beginning of students new lives in the world - the beginning of their professional life. We consider ourselves lucky that our ceremony was one of the few and first ceremonies happening in COVID times!
