Truly, many of our graduates have been waiting for their convocation day. All of our hard work are towards this day, to stand on the stage and to make our parents proud. On the 5th of December 2021, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia had its 49th Convocation in the new normal setting. This day, excitement permeates the air. Donning their convocation robe, graduates from different courses are present in one place, Dewan Canselor Tunku Abdul Razak (DECTAR) to celebrate their graduation. Graduation is one of the most memorable day in our lives as it marks the end of our lives as a student.
The ceremony began with the national anthem Negaraku, doa recitation and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia songs. After that, the ceremony continued with a speech from the vice chancellor, Ybhg. Prof. Dato’ Ts. Dr. Mohd Ekhwan Haji Toriman to welcome all graduates to the convocation ceremony. Faculty of Pharmacy had produced numerous outstanding graduates. Our graduates from Bachelor of Pharmacy received some awards in the convocation. Law Yan Ling and Muhammad Syakir bin Mohd Shahrizan received Hadiah Pharmaniaga. Nur Aqilah Idayu binti Azman received Hadiah Ibnu Sina. Ling Jia Yee received Hadiah Buku Universiti and Chong Cheng Jun received Pingat Emas Universiti.
The ceremony ended with the announcement of the graduates as alumni of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and they waved their hands to the screen, bidding farewell. Bittersweet memories are all that remains as graduates part, hoping to see each other again one day in the future.
