The conferment ceremony of the Faculty of Philosophy

About a month ago I participated in the conferment ceremony of the Faculty of Philosophy, a formal, and very traditional three day celebration during which I was granted the rights to wear the symbols of my academic degree, a doctoral hat and a doctoral sword.
The three days were filled with dinners and other festivities, culminating in a formal ball and a night procession through the center of Helsinki. I’d like to thank all of the organizers of the event!  I had a great time. The ceremony will probably be up there amongst the most unique experiences of my life, I mean when I am I ever going to be a part of a que consisting of 200+ masters and doctors dancing through the streets of Helsinki again.

All of the pictures here were taken by the talented people at Bonafide Creatives. Check them out at: https://www.bonafideweddings.fi/.
