Fun in the sun. :Post from Tees Made

Great to see the Class of 2016 enjoying their graduation in the sun today.  It was probably a shade too hot but it certainly added too the day. There was a fantastic atmosphere in campus heart and throughout the University.IMG_2012 IMG_2014 IMG_2015 IMG_2016 IMG_2017

Also what a  pleasure it was to meet up with Product Design graduate John Barrett, who was here to receive an honorary doctorate from the University. John graduated in 1988, from the then Teesside Polytechnic, and is now President and Chief Executive Officer of US-based global design consultancy TEAGUE.

John gave a wonderfully inspiring speech, talking fondly about his time at Teesside and how the course helped to mould his hugely successful career.

Good luck to all our graduates.
