Since 2005, the University of Bonn has been saying farewell to its current graduating class at the “Universitätsfest” (University Festival). Due to the Corona pandemic, the big event with several thousand participants in a marquee on the Hofgartenwiese in Bonn could not take place this year. The celebration is now being held in digital form.

The "Digital Unifest 2020" will be launched next Monday, August 24th, online at https://www.universitaetsfest.uni-bonn.de. For four weeks, there will be numerous offers aimed at the graduates of the 2019/2020 class as well as their families and friends. Anyone who would like to congratulate the members of the graduating class can also take part. Individual graduation videos can be created and shared via social media or e-mail. In front of the virtual backdrop of the main university building and an enthusiastic audience, graduates receive their certificate. Uploaded portraits of the graduates, their friends and families can be used to individualize these videos.

Anyone who also uploads a photo and a message can place it in a digital gallery and thus contribute to a joint photo mosaic from which an overall motif will be created. In addition, graduates can order to receive special certificates as usual and buy or borrow gowns and berets typical for the celebration.

Rector Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Michael Hoch: "The University Festival has a great tradition and a special significance for the University of Bonn’s community. I am therefore very pleased that we are celebrating the 16th University Festival together digitally".
