University Festival at Hrafnseyri

On June 17, Iceland's National Day, the University Centre of the Westfjords celebrated a University Festival at Hrafnseyri in Arnarfjörður. This is the fourth time that the University Centre celebrates on this day the graduation of its master's students in Coastal and Marine Management. In addition to the CMM students a group of distance learning students, studying at the University of Akureyri, joined in to celebrate their graduation. The formal graduation of all the students was on June 15 in Akureyri but since the rector of the University of Akureyri participated in the event on Hrafnseyri he also brought with him the diplomas for all graduation students.

Eighteen students graduated from the Coastal and Marine Management master's program and four students graduated from distance learning programs in psychology , business administration and teaching. Nora Jacobi, a graduating student from the CMM program spoke on behalf of the master's students and Edda Björg Magnúsdóttir spoke on behalf of the distance learning students.

The University Festival at Hrafnseyri has become an important part of the University Centre's academic year and will no doubt continue as such in the future. The University Centre extends its warm congratulations to all the graduating students.
