It has been a fortnight to remember for the Graduating Classes of 2020 and 2021, who have finally been able to mark their milestone achievements with in-person ceremonies after the virtual Commencement earlier this year.
Commencement season kicked off with the ceremonies for degrees from the Faculty of Engineering, with Safe Management Measures (SMMs) in place.
More than 10,000 graduates and their loved ones will mark the occasion at the 89 physical ceremonies, previously temporarily derailed due to the worsening COVID-19 situation back in May.
Commencement kicked off bright and early on the morning of 1 Oct with degrees in Engineering, and will run all the way to 24 Oct with strict safe management and zoning measures in place.
Other ceremonies which have taken place include those for degrees from the Schools of Business and Computing, the Faculties of Dentistry and Science, the University Scholars Programme (USP), and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.
Commencement traditions and the ceremonial heritage of NUS, such as the presence of the academic procession and the playing of the National Anthem, were duly observed, with graduates from these faculties celebrating their achievements amid the applause of family and friends.
In line with safe management measures, those in attendance did not sing the National Anthem – they stood at attention while it was played. Additionally, there were fewer people in the academic processions, with each ceremony having just one row of nine including the Presiding Officer.
