College officials today announced that 95 students will be graduated in ceremonies scheduled for Thursday, May 15th at 2:30 p.m. on the College field.

The College traditionally bestows the appropriate Associate Degree, Diploma and Certificate status on deserving students in the divisions of Applied Science & Technology, Business Administration & Hospitality, and Liberal Arts. Ceremonies also feature graduates of the College’s partnership with Mount Saint Vincent University baccalaureate degree programme in Business Administration and Child and Youth Studies. This year, Associate Professor in Business and Tourism, Dr. Sandi Findlay-Thompson, is on Island to bestow baccalaureate degrees on 15 graduates of the University’s Business Administration and Applied Arts (Child & Youth Studies) programmes.

Bermuda College President Dr. Duranda Greene noted that the May Commencement ceremonies always represent the pinnacle of the academic year for faculty, staff and graduating students. “We continue to be committed to providing our students with every possible stepping stone on their path to success – whether success in transferable credits to overseas colleges and universities, or to the next level of their chosen career,” she stated.

This year, the College will see a mother and son graduating together, and a graduate from the Actuarial Science associate degree programme successfully transfer her Bermuda College credits to the third or junior year at Georgia State University, earning her in-state tuition fees.

The College will close at 1:00 p.m. for the ceremonies.

All evening classes will be held as scheduled.
