Graduation Days

Saturday was the final day of this years BA’s Graduation at The Senate House. The sun shone, the expectant recipients, suitably gowned, entered The Senate House, one college at a time and, via a different entrance, proud parents and family members were ushered to their seats.

Just a short while later the granuards emerge back into the sunlight, with broad smiles..it seems like a million photos of the happy occasion are taken over the 3 days and then it’s time to relax and enjoy the moment with a cool drink on The Senate House Lawn.

Ceremony and tradition add to these special days. The Bulldogs in their top hats are on hand to help and, as one would expect from the University’s “private” police force, ensure proper behaviour, just as they have done down the centuries.
