The Faculty of Science has created a video to congratulate the graduating Class of 2020 and holding a virtual celebration via Zoom this morning — Wednesday, May 27 — at the time that science students would have been walking across the convocation stage.
“Because we are not able to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating students in person, we thought that it was essential to recognize this memorable moment in their lives,” says Chris Houser, dean of the Faculty of Science.
The video includes a message from UWindsor president Rob Gordon and a welcome by the Alumni Association, along with congratulatory (selfie) videos from faculty, staff, and students across the Faculty of Science.
Footage for the video was shot by Dylan Kristy of Public Affairs and Communications, and the video was produced by Sameer Jafar, an alumnus of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry who now runs his own production company, Blackcap Ltd, in Toronto, highlighting science stories.
The video is available through the Faculty of Science YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywfh7sfp0I4&feature=youtu.be.
