2018 Spring Graduations celebrated
Spring has sprung and so are the CUT graduates, who celebrated their achievement at the Spring Graduation ceremony held on 07 September 2018. For this season, 571 graduates walked tall across the Boet Troskie Hall stage, with their families and friends singing praising and ululating as their names were called and they ascended the stage. To date, a total of 3 477 degrees and diplomas were conferred including 40 masters and 20 doctorates.
When congratulating the graduates, Prof. Henk de Jager, Vice-Chancellor and Principal said that CUT is determined to play a crucial role in the socio-economic development of the region, province and country and thanked the graduates for choosing CUT as their academic home.
“You are of our own, and you have made the institution immeasurably proud for having completed your studies successfully and graduating today. By graduating, you are indeed living examples of determination and hard work and we send you off as CUT graduates but most importantly as our ambassadors and proud alumni. Go out there and make us proud.”
Prof. Henk also acknowledged all parents, guardians, relatives and friends of the graduates for their love and continued support. “Without your love, encouragement, praise, financial assistance and patience, none of these graduates would be here today. Thank you for all your many sacrifices, and for providing them with the best education and the opportunity to study here at CUT. Always remember that their achievements are also yours.”
