28 undergraduate Chemistry Majors were awarded their degrees on Friday, June 2, 2023.

On Friday, June 2, 2023, a lovely spring day, 28 chemistry majors were awarded their undergraduate degrees as members of the Class of 2023. The graduates and their loved ones gathered on Killian Court and enjoyed speeches by President Sally Kornbluth and Chancellor Melissa Nobles.

“Isn’t it reassuring to know that, when you thought maybe you couldn’t keep going, you persevered — turning to others for help when you needed it and approaching your academic trek with patience, resilience, and a mindset of continuous growth?” Nobles asked the Class of 2023. “Achieving incredible things in life is rarely easy. There’s never a clear path to the top. But what makes it all worth it is learning that you are often stronger than you imagined, and that if you ask for help, you’ll be amazed by the people who will be there to keep you steady and on course.”

Following the ceremony, the newly graduated Class of 2023 and their guests were welcomed to a reception in the lobby of Building 18.

The Department is immensely proud of the graduates, and all they have accomplished during their time at MIT.
