Assam Don Bosco University witnessed a landmark celebration of its sixth Convocation at its Azara campus on Saturday, the 9th of September 2017 at which Degrees were conferred on 724 students, of which 208 students received the degree in Bachelor of Technology, 41 in Master of Technology, 54 in Master of Social Work, 20 in Master of Computer Applications, 34 in Master of Business Administration, 9 in MA in Psychological Counseling, 5 in MA in Human Rights, 4 MA in Mass Communication, 7 MA in Education and 13 M.Sc. in Physics and 14 Masters in Life Sciences. Doctoral degrees were conferred on 6 scholars. In the DBU Global on-line courses degrees were conferred on 309 candidates.

Gold Medals under various categories were awarded to 16 outstanding graduates with the highest Cumulative Grade Point Average in each program. Amar Kujur of Master of Business Administration (MBA) had been awarded the chancellor’s gold medal for being the outstanding student from amongst all the PG courses of ADBU and the Vice Chancellor’s medal had been awarded to Rachael George from the department of Computer Science and Engineering for outstanding performance amongst the UG courses of the university.

The Hon’ble Governor of Assam, Shri Banwarilal Purohit who presided over the event as the visitor to the university.

Declaring open the convocation, Salesian Provincial of Guwahati and Chancellor of ADBU, Fr. V.M. Thomas congratulated the graduates as they are about to begin a new chapter of their life with mixed feelings of empowerment and excitement. He emphasized on the fact that North East India is blessed with all possible resources that easily should help the region to attract the attention of stakeholders from all parts of the world, and though the region has been in the news for various wrong reasons, there are ample reasons to celebrate the strengths of North East India and of her people.

“It is time that all of us pull our collective resources to project the desired image of the region which has the potential to become an economic hub of the country with easy access to the ASEAN economy and also a tourism hotspot globally”.

Mentioning the recently held Brahmaputra festival, he said “Just as the mighty river Brahmaputra, the North East of India is filled with latent promises - untapped and underused. But there is a hope shimmering under the surface of these promises, and like the subtle music of the river waves, this hope makes a beautiful rhythm audible to anyone who simply longs to hear it.” He concluded the address congratulating all the graduates and asking them that whatever path they take in life, they should always give something back to the society, help others rise and become VIPs (a Visionary, an Inspirational individual & a Performing leader).

The Vice Chancellor, Dr. (Fr.) Stephen Mavely, began his address by welcoming the Hon’ble Governor as well as all the graduates and the dignitaries. Fr. Mavely presented a comprehensive report of the university covering all the significant developments that had taken place in the university in the past one year in the areas of research, academics, infrastructural developments and quality assurance, to name a few. He also mentioned about the special emphasis focused upon the core strengths of the university, especially on the ADBU a culture which is uniquely its own-“the Don Bosco’s system of education”, and it energizes and knits the entire fraternity together into one educative community.

While sharing one of his recent experiences, he highlighted the special attribute that every Bosconian graduate should possess: “the sense of social commitment to ‘get into the pain of things’, and alleviate the pain and agony in whatever way possible.” He concluded on a very reflective note saying, “Your future is in your hands… Carpe Diem! Seize the Day! Let me wish you, an abundance of God’s blessings as you ‘journey on in hope…!”

Rachael George, awarded double gold medals for securing the highest CGPA in Computer Science and Engineering and also the prestigious Vice Chancellor’s medal, and the Valedictorian from the UG group expressed her gratitude towards the university and affirmed that “Don Bosco was a very important milestone in our lives and a ladder to our dreams. It was, is and always will be a place to foster our minds and bodies, pushing us to achieve the impossible and believing that we can do it”.

Mr. Alankar Hajoary, who was awarded the degree of Masters in Computer Applications, expressed his deep pleasure and honour in being chosen to deliver the valedictorian speech on behalf of all the PG students. Expressing his profound gratitude towards the university he stated “Dear friends, let us not forget what Don Bosco University has given us, let’s make this world a better place to live in. Let the world look up to us and say, “That gentleman/lady is the product of Don Bosco University.” Stand with pride as a Bosconian.” Mr. Hajoary concluded with the promise that the graduates of the university are the flag bearers of the university and will whole heartedly contribute back to ADBU in every way possible.

Ramona Singani, a valedictorian from South Africa thanked Assam Don Bosco University on behalf of all the DBU global graduates, for the unswerving support and spreading the wings of education beyond borders.

Another valedictorian, Fr. Shajymon ML, who was awarded the doctoral degree, expressed his immense joy and profound gratitude to Almighty God and to ADBU and mentioned that it is a matter of privilege to be a part of ADBU. He stated, “We are very proud of our esteemed research supervisor and mentors, who are down to earth and extremely enduring and highly compassionate all through our endeavour to accomplish our dreams.”

The joy filled and contented faces of the graduates and their parents, the starlit evening, the beautifully decorated campus and the fragrance of joviality in the air, marked the successful completion of another spectacular milestone in the history of ADBU.
