Congratulations to our 2020 Been Lab Graduates!

Congratulations to our graduating seniors, Abiola Irvine and Maeve Gaffney! Although they spent the last part of their senior year working remotely because of Covid-19, they still completed outstanding theses and showed tremendous resilience in the face of difficult circumstances.

When seniors turn in their theses, we usually celebrate with champagne and sign where the cork hits the ceiling. Abiola and Maeve couldn’t be on campus, so we celebrated together on Zoom and earmarked their ceiling tile for when they return. Congratulations, Abiola and Maeve!!
