On 21 September 2011, it was their (and their parents’) great day: 35 graduates formally graduated in a dignified ceremony at Asian University.
Dr. Viphandh Roengpithya, Founder and President of Asian University, welcomed the guests and handed over to Prof. Dr. Surin Setamanit, Chairman of the University Council, who conferred the degree certificates to the graduates presented by the Deans of the Faculties of Business, Engineering and Technology, and Liberal Arts.
Students rarely smile as happy as they do at their Graduation Day.
The students of the College@AsianU sang the ‘Gaudeamus Igitur’ (Latin, “So Let Us Rejoice”) which is a popular academic commercium song in many European countries, mainly sung or performed at university graduation ceremonies.
Despite its use as a formal graduation hymn, it is a jocular, light-hearted composition that pokes fun at university life.
The song dates to the early 18th century, based on a Latin manuscript from 1287.
