99 Students To Graduate From Bermuda College

May 22, 2013

99 students will graduate from Bermuda College tomorrow [May 23], with the ceremony to be held at 2:30 p.m. on the College field.

The College traditionally bestows the appropriate Associate Degree, Diploma and Certificate status on deserving students in the divisions of Applied Science & Technology, Business Administration & Hospitality, and Liberal Arts.

Ceremonies also feature graduates of the College’s partnership with Mount Saint Vincent University baccalaureate degree programme in Business Administration and Child and Youth Studies.

This year, President and Vice Chancellor of MSVU, Dr. Ramona Lumpkin, is on Island to bestow baccalaureate degrees on 17 graduates of the University’s Business Administration and Applied Arts [Child & Youth Studies] programmes.

Bermuda College President Dr. Duranda Greene says the College continues to provide first-class education options and opportunities to Bermuda’s students. “We continue to be committed to providing our students with every possible stepping stone on their path to success – whether success in transferable credits to overseas colleges and universities, or to the next level of their chosen career,” she stated.

“This year, we are particularly proud of Tare Brangman, who is the first Bermuda College student to be awarded the privilege of paying in-state fees at Georgia State University, representing more than $7,000 per year in savings.”

Bermuda College forged an articulation agreement with Georgia State University two years ago, and Tare is the first graduate to benefit from that agreement. She is graduating with the Associate of Arts [Business Administration] degree, and wants to become an underwriter. All of her credits have been accepted at GSU and she will be entering the third or junior year there.

“That’s quite an accomplishment, and we’re very proud of her,” said Dr. Greene.

The College will close at 1:00 p.m. for the ceremonies. All evening classes will be held as scheduled.
