Two Spring Ceremonies held at the IT Faculty
On the 12th of June the traditional Spring Ceremonies were held at the IT Faculty. This year there was one ceremony for the students at the BSc programmes, and another for the master students.
The sun was spreading in the Ceremony Hall of the University of Gothenburg, rendering an atmosphere of Swedish summer. We listened to many nice talks, a fanfare was blown for every programme leaving the stage, and a trio from the Academy of Music and Drama at the University of Gothenburg performed Swedish summer songs at their best.
We were all a bit affected by the special occasion, marking the end of years of studying and time to say goodby for now.

The Pro Dean of the IT Faculty, Dick Stenmark, said in his speech to the students: "I have a secret - I can see the future. It is sitting right in front of me. You are the future!" which somewhat summerized what we were all thinking a day like this. And we are of course hoping to see our former students again, as guest lecturers, as returning students, or maybe as some of our collaboration partners in future research projects!
After all memorable speeches, songs, music, congrats, and ideas of the good life, we went to the foyer to mingle and have some Swedish strawberries. Photo: Peter Larsson
