Jalandhar:  Lovely Professional University is going to hold its 10th annual Convocation on 18th September 2019 at LPU Campus.  His Excellency Vice-President of the Republic of Suriname-a South American Country- Michael Ashwin Satyandre Adhin will be the Chief Guest on this ceremonial day. Vice-President will not only deliver the convocation address but also award gold medals to meritorious students for their outstanding performances.  LPU is to award degrees/diplomas to 7549 Regular students; 55 Part-time students; and, 11971 Distance education students of the 2018 and 2019 batches.

With Dutch as an official language, Presidential Republic Suriname has multi-diversity with 22% Hindu population. Maximum of the country being under forests, there is plenty of timber resources, precious metals including Gold. Famous for its water lilies and orchids, Suriname is a small country on the north-eastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is one of the top producers of Bauxite in the world, which is the primary source of revenue. Almost 80% of its landmass is untouched rainforest and protected bio-reserves, which has attracted countless tourists over the years.

With a rise in eco-tourism and diversification of exports, the potential for Suriname’s economy to improve is high. Its Vice-President H.E. Ashwin Adhin, possibly the youngest Vice-President of a country, is an educator by heart. Presently, he is Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Suriname. As a young accomplished individual of Indian origin, Adhin has great affinity for India and Indians. LPU students will indeed be fortunate in receiving convocation message from such a leader.

Convocation at LPU has always been illustrious as either head of a nation or a leader of national/international importance addresses it. This makes students receive rational & lucid thoughts just before stepping into a new phase of their life. Prior to this, many Presidents and Prime Ministers of different nations including Mauritius, Kingdom of Lesotho, Commonwealth of Dominica (North America), Afghanistan, India and Nobel Peace Prize recipient His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, have already delivered grand messages to lakhs of LPU students during different convocations.

Informing more, LPU Chancellor Ashok Mittal says: “On the convocation day, an exceptional glimpse of international integrity would be seen when students from 50+ countries will also receive degrees/certificates along with their Indian classmates, from all states of India.” LPU has also requested all students and their parents to keep on visiting LPU website ‘www.lpu.in’ for the latest updates and guidelines. LPU alumni and students are to reach the University Campus as per the schedule notified on LPU website. In fact, LPU values the supportive role played by parents in bringing up children. Thus, parents are specially invited on such a memorable occasion for witnessing their wards being blessed by an elite global personality of youthful thoughts.
