Webster University Thailand honored its 2015 graduates on Sunday 10th May at a Graduation Ceremony held near the university’s Hua Hin/Cha-Am Campus at the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa.
While graduation ceremonies are always a special occasion for everyone involved, this year’s event took on extra significance as Webster University marked a major milestone in its proud history. Having originally been established by Catholic sisters in 1915, Webster University has now completed its 100th year of providing high quality education.
As part of a global campaign to celebrate the university’s centennial year, the graduation event in Thailand was timed to coincide with similar ceremonies taking place at Webster University campuses on four different continents around the world.
Underlining the fact that Webster University has grown from its original roots to become a truly global university, the 102 graduates from 23 countries who were honoured at the graduation ceremony in Thailand joined a total of 6,574 graduates from 110 countries at Webster University campuses in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
The Webster University Thailand Graduation Ceremony 1015 was introduced by the university’s rector, Ratish Thakur who took the opportunity to congratulate the students on reaping the rewards that their hard work had deserved.
A Commencement Address was also given by Guest of Honor, Mr. David R. Nardone, who holds the position of Vice President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand as well as those of President and Chief Executive Officer of Hemaraj Land and Development Public Company Limited.
Having successfully completed their respective courses and collected their degrees, the recently graduated students not only enter the global labor market armed with an American degree that is fully accredited in the USA, but also join more than 176,000 fellow Webster University alumni around the world.
