The 23rd graduation ceremony took place on Saturday, 13th February 2021 starting around 10.30 am. It was the first of its kind – having students graduate virtually (online) on TV, radio and social media. It was streamed on local radio and TV stations i.e. BBS TV, CBS FM, Zoom and YouTube for the online viewers. The event’s theme was, “Digital Innovations for Academic Excellence during COVID19 and beyond”.
In adherence to COVID19 SOPs, about 200 students (out of the 1312 graduands) were physically invited to the graduation grounds. A few other stake holders were also present e.g., members of the foundation body, university council, board of trustees, university management, some parents and other distinguished guests.
Unlike the other events, the graduation day started with a heavy downpour that prevented the event from starting at 9am as planned. However, once the rain reduced, all other activities went on successfully.
