LAHORE - The Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) is celebrating 25 years of academic excellence this year and held its 22nd Annual Convocation on September 25, 2010. The LUMS community celebrated the graduation of 626 students and honoured its outstanding students with awards and medals for excellence in academic performances. An evening earlier, on September 24, 2010, the traditional Graduate Night Dinner was held where graduates achieving distinctions in subject areas and those making it to the coveted Dean's Honour List were awarded medals and shields. 67 graduating students who made it to the Dean's Honour list and/or received Corporate Gold Medals were honoured. The sparkling ceremony concluded in the late evening with a formal dinner organised at the award winning lawns of LUMS. As a part of LUMS 25 Years Celebrations, the first two Alumni batches (MBA 1988, MBA 1989) were also invited to the Graduate Night Dinner. The idea was for the newest alumni batch to see the earliest alumni who contributed largely to the success and repute of their Alma Mater making it the LUMS of today. The Convocation Ceremony was held on September 25, 2010 at the Syed Maratib Ali Sports Complex on the sprawling LUMS campus. At the ceremony, degrees were awarded to the graduates.
