25 new professionals graduated this week following a four year university tourism course, with a solemn graduation ceremony in the Adeje Convento in the presence of their families and friends and the Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga and the University of La Laguna rector Antonio Martinón Cejas. This is the second year that there have been graduates from this relatively new course, based in the campus in Adeje.
For the mayor of the borough this was “a very special event and very significant for Adeje. This second graduation ceremony is no less important as it marks the path we have taken. We have travelled far to arrive at this point as have you, you who have chosen to place your confidence in the South Campus for your studies in tourism”.
He also referred to the series of celebrations in parallel this year, with the Summer University celebrating 25 years, the University of La Laguna 225 years, and the borough’s first secondary school, the Los Olivos institute, also marking 25 years of educating Adeje’s young people.
Rector Martinón thanked the 25 graduated for choosing to follow this career path and study with the ULL and in Adeje, in the South Campus. He said the university was created 225 years ago to meet a social need and is here today to continue to serve the people in the field of education and investigation. “I believe we have carried out extraordinary work and today we are seeing 25 young people enter into the professional world. In the ULL we believe in the capacity of the individual and we place primary importance on the merits of each individual”, he said.
