LUC The Hague: Summer Graduation - Class of 2020
As you may have heard, the Dutch government has decided that large-scale events are not allowed until September 1. Following this announcement the CB, together with the graduation team decided to change the live graduation event of the Class of 2020 on July 10 into an online event. As the community is such an important part of LUC we want to provide all students with the opportunity to be part of this celebration of their achievements at LUC together.
The primary concern is for the health of our staff, students and their families, and hosting a large-scale event in the coming months will not be a possibility nor can we guarantee health measures will allow this. Therefore, an online alternative on the original date is the most inclusive and safe option that does allow for the opportunity to mark the end of your LUC years. We will continue to also look for options of a live get-together at a later date, but given the current situation, we cannot yet confirm a specific date or venue.
We understand that not being able to have a live graduation event at the end of your time at LUC is disappointing, and realize that this may have not been the outcome you wanted nor expected. This year has unfortunately been full of smaller and bigger disappointments, and all we can do is make the very best of a bad situation! We have a very interesting commencement speaker for this ceremony, and we will also keep some of the traditions such as special awards. More information on this will follow.
