2020 Zoom Graduation

The graduation ceremony is one of the highlights of any student's journey, and nowhere more than in the OU where it's always an emotional and hugely enjoyable day ! The global COVID-19 pandemic has meant that in 2020 students everywhere have had to postpone their celebration, but it's been wonderful to see that some of them were able to arrange a virtual event to mark the occasion.

Sarah Young, Sammi Kay, Billy (Uni Will), Su Bowen, Kara Young, Joey Wrench and I worked tirelessly over Facebook, Zoom and emails and with no budget to put on the Zoom Celebration, an Adobe quiz and a spotify playlist so that 2020 ou graduates could all celebrate virtually together. We are so thankful to all our speakers including Frederick Toates, Sara Ebbett and Sarah Jones for giving up their time and thank you to everyone who contributed to make our day memorable. It was an amazing and challenging experience and we would recommend future graduates to give it a go for their own graduation celebrations!

We're delighted to host the video above of the short talk that Professor Frederick Toates was invited to give, and the pictures that we were sent.

Congratulations to all of you, and well done - you made it !
