Alumni and colleagues have reached out to share their pride and well-wishes. You can read some of these messages below.
“Congratulations to you all on graduating from St George’s. I am sure that you hold a sense of pride and satisfaction that your passion for your chosen course of study has come to fruition, from the range of programmes that the college offers.
“What we currently face is indiscriminate and greater than all of us. It is natural for doubt to take hold. Therefore, I encourage you all to take this time to seek out your support networks in the most holistic way possible, be it academically, professionally and also socially and personally.
“In time, I hope you too manage to realise many of your life goals and in a decade or so look back and reflect fondly; with hopefully some exciting adventures under your belt and interesting, moving and life-affirming stories to share!”
“You have done it! It took years of effort, dedication and sacrifice but you have managed to get to the finish line. Despite the unique circumstances we all find ourselves in this year, you should take the time to celebrate your achievement. Some of you will have the next 10 years planned and others may not have the next 10 days planned, either way this is a great opportunity to really consider your options. Take advice from those you admire, not just those who have made it but those on their way. Collect recommendations from a wide spectrum of sources and act on the tips that suit your circumstances best.”
Chris Huggins Biomedical Science Class of 2010, PhD Class of 2016
“I would like to offer my heartiest congratulations to all St George’s University graduates of 2020! Graduation celebrations might be a little different this year due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, but do not forget that each and every one of you can make a difference in the healthcare field. I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavours!”
