Commencement 2016: a photo journey through a historic day

The 144 members of Ashesi University College Class of 2016 bowed out splendidly. Not only have they raised the standard for excellence in Ashesi, but on June 25th, 2016, they also shared with all of us, the most colourful commencement ceremony yet. For a day of awards, speeches, laughter, selfies and cool-looking caps, reading just the stories and speeches may not do enough justice to the beautiful tapestry made up many parts of this day.   

Pictures indeed bear within them unique and countless stories. Here are thirty pictures that attempt to retell the events of Ashesi's 12th Commencement ceremony.
