Virtual Department Convocation 2020  

Dear Graduates,

It is my great pleasure to congratulate you and wish you all the best for your future. The last two months were extremely difficult, and most of you were counting on spending them with your friends at StonyBrook to bring your time at college to a proper closure. I am sure all of you had very different plans for graduation. But, despite the difficult times and challenges, you have every reason to cherish your accomplishments and celebrate!

You are one of the 75 new Bachelors of Science, 28 Masters, or 18 Ph.Ds. ! You completed a degree from one of the best departments in the country. That is an outstanding achievement that only few are able to attain. Let me tell you, graduates, we - the faculty of your department - are really proud of you!

I would also like to thank and congratulate all parents and friends who have helped and supported you.

Last but not least, I hope that I can congratulate you in person at our December Convocation for the class of 2020. For now enjoy the faculty congratulating you in this video and look up your fellow graduates and there achievements in our Virtual Convocation Program.
