  1. Wonderful ceremony, so glad to be sharing this moment after such difficult times!
    Congratulations to all BU Teachers, students, staff! We travelled from Mexico to be here this weekend!

  2. Congratulations on Class 2022! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 18 years since I graduated with PhD in Mechanical Engineering from BU. I wish to visit the campus and meet my professors again in near future.
