2010 Graduation Ceremony is a Success!

In case you missed it, the 2010 UCLA Extension Graduation Ceremony took place on Tuesday, June 29th at Royce Hall. The event was a huge success and honored over 2,000 certificate students!

Perhaps the highlight of the night was the performance of the inspiring song that was written for the event by two students from the UCLA Extension course, Writing Lyrics That Succeed and Endure, under the guidance of instructor Marty Panzer.

Below is a recap of the world premier performance of “This Is Our Time”

Music & Lyrics by – DEBRA GUSSIN and DALE EFFREN
Performed by – ERICH BERGEN
Musical Director – STEVE ORICH

with an introduction by Dean Cathy Sandeen

Congratulations to our songwriters, graduating students, proud instructors, staff, and all involved!



  1. A massive well done to all of those who graduated this year. You should all be very proud of what you have achieved!
