At Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q)’s annual convocation ceremony, the leadership team, faculty members and current students welcomed the incoming class and offered them words of wisdom and advice.

“Class of 2021, you will add your unique mark to our global community. You are now part of this tradition, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to Carnegie Mellon University,” said John O’Brien, interim dean of CMU-Q.

Following CMU-Q tradition, the Class of 2021 was presented with a tile engraved with their graduation year. The tile will be installed in the walkway of the CMU-Q building when the class graduates in May 2021.
