In a year like no other, it is no wonder that the AUB Class of 2021 would have a commencement like no other. After two years of interrupted learning, mostly accomplished online, the indomitable Class of 2021 graduated during five ceremonies spanning four months.
Graduating in the time of COVID-19, students in the health sciences—who had been vaccinated already—held their ceremonies in June 2021, albeit with the necessary precautions of social distancing and no audience. Then, after a whirlwind summer vaccination drive, all other Class of 2021 graduating students were able to have their in-person ceremonies in September.
Here is their graduation story in pictures.
