With hundreds of friends and family looking on, graduates of the School of Information celebrated on Friday, April 29 at the Graduate Recognition Ceremony on campus in the Mendelssohn Theatre.
The ceremony included recognition for nine graduating doctoral students: Eytan Bakshy, Archer Batcheller, Eric Cook, Brian Hilligoss, Lian Jian, Cory Knobel, John Lin, Kevin Nam, and Maria Souden.
In his remarks addressing the Master of Science in Information and doctoral graduates, Dean Jeff MacKie-Mason noted that SI’s new graduates leave with a solid foundation based on educational attainment, service, and philanthropy. As examples, he noted the Service Day in January and Alternative Spring Break.
In the two years that most of the Master of Science in Information graduates were at SI, advances in social technology were rapid.
