Graduation Message to our Students

The Department of Biology and Institute of Biochemistry wish to extend sincere congratulations to our Class of 2020!

Congratulations! You made it!

Congratulations to our Class of 2020 on your well-deserved success.

This year has introduced many challenges. We recognize your determination and efforts to complete your studies through the everchanging pandemic. We acknowledge your resilience, and are thankful for your support during this stressful time.

Your ability to overcome change and all your hard work over the years, proves how unstoppable you are. Take your degree and show the world what you are made of! We are not only proud of what you have accomplished here at Carleton, but we are excited to see what lies ahead, as you recognize your full potential.

We are deeply disappointed that we are unable to celebrate with you in person this year. Remember, your convocation is not cancelled, merely postponed. We look forward to the future event where we will be able to not only celebrate your accomplishments at Carleton, but also learn about where life has taken you after this graduation day.

We’ve compiled messages of congratulations from the Department/Institute faculty and staff. All of these messages can be found below.

We encourage you to stay in touch with us as alumni! There are many ways to stay involved.

The Department of Biology hosts the Biology Seminar Series, the Annual Carmody Lecture, the Annual McCully Lecture, and the Annual Biology Butterfly Show. We hope you will return to Carleton in the future to join us in these and other campus events, either in-person or virtually.

Please stay in touch, we invite you to connect with us on Social Media.
