After a time of effort, sacrifice and a lot of work well done, the students of the last two classes of all degrees and of many of the La Salle-URL masters have celebrated their graduations. Despite the complex situation and changing circumstances, the celebration of the Graduation Ceremonies was a success, respecting the security measures and following the protocols established by the authorities for academic events.
The students, now graduates, were the main protagonists of the ceremonies and, despite the mandatory capacity limitation, they were accompanied by some of their relatives, by the teaching staff and by institutional representatives. In addition, streaming registration was enabled so that all students who could not be present and all relatives and acquaintances, as well as all members of the La Salle-URL community, could follow the events live. The ceremonies could also be followed from the Campus Auditorium. More than 1,100 people attended the four Graduation Ceremonies in streaming and live, around 1,700 people.
