Graduands arrived, dressed in full ‘sub-fusc’ (robes, hats, ribbons), and reunited with one another for a whole group photograph taken on the Front Quad. They then enjoyed drinks in the Long Gallery of the Lodgings, followed by lunch in Hall with their tutors.
After the celebrations, the graduands walked to the Sheldonian for their formal graduation ceremony. They returned as official graduates of the University, and were welcomed with Afternoon Tea on the Great Lawn and an address by Professor Dame Sue Black on her first official Degree Day as President of St John’s.
Photos from the day can be found here. Many thanks to all of the college staff in attendance for their hard work in helping to make the day such a success.
