It was a week to remember as hundreds of students said farewell and graduated from the University of Sunderland.

We saw tears, laughter, thunderstorms; we welcomed a new superstar Chancellor in Emeli Sande, as we said goodbye to Olympian Steve Cram.

But, most importantly, it was a five-day celebration of our students as they prepare to begin a new chapter in their lives.
