VIDEO: ‘Thank You for Being the Examples of Leadership We So Cherish at Babson’

Speeches were delivered. Names were read. Tassels were turned. Degrees were conferred. Photos were taken. Actually, lots of photos were taken.

Most important of all, though, the undergraduate and graduate members of the Class of 2021 were able to celebrate together during Babson College’s in-person Commencement experiences May 1 and 2, in addition to the formal digital Commencement ceremonies May 15.

“Despite the difficulties, you have adjusted and you have excelled,” President Stephen Spinelli Jr. MBA’92, PhD told the graduates in his address. “Thank you for being the examples of leadership we so cherish at Babson College.”

In addition to the traditional Commencement activities of the in-person celebrations, the digital ceremonies featured speeches from College leadership, as well as from student speakers Britney Aguayo ’21 and Vaidehi Tembhekar MBA’21 and honorary degree recipients Jamie Siminoff ’99, H’21, the CEO, founder, and chief inventor of Ring; and Dr. Albert Bourla H’21, the chairman and CEO of Pfizer.
