International Flavour of Winter Conferrings at UCC

The cold temperatures and icy conditions failed to dampen the spirits of UCC’s graduands this week as they donned their finery and celebrated their academic achievements with family, friends and faculty. Many international students were among those proudly displaying their parchments and excitedly sharing their plans for future research, jobs and travel. Some conferring addresses were also delivered by international visitors including Dr Ann Whall, Visiting Professor UCC; Professor Emerita, University of Michigan (USA); Allesse Endowed Chair, Oakland University (USA).
