The University of Cape Town’s (UCT) first in-person graduation since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic was a festive, jubilant affair. And students, their loved ones and academic staff were delighted to be back inside the Sarah Baartman Hall – with all the bells and whistles – after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus. They received the graduation ceremony of their dreams as their loved ones and academics who have equally contributed to their successes cheered, ululated and applauded excitedly.
