Pride and emotion
- Sciences Po graduates with their parents in Paris ©Fabien Loire
On 9 and 10 July, parents from all over the world came to Paris to celebrate their son’s or daughter’s graduation.
For parents no less than for graduates, the graduation ceremony often marks the end of an era. The next stage will see their sons and daughters leave the nest for good to embark on whichever career they choose from the limitless possibilities now open to them.
On graduation day, parents look back at the years gone by, recall the path their children have followed, and reflect on how they have blossomed during their studies.
For the Sciences Po faculty and staff, graduation day is the opportunity to bid graduates farewell, and also to thank the parents for having entrusted Sciences Po with their children.
