Normally right about now, you'd see university campuses teeming with young adults in gowns, celebrating a major milestone in their lives. 

But this year — like last year — that's all on video. And once that video ends, and the degrees arrive in the mail, grads will be joining the working world at a time of high unemployment and a lot of uncertainty for the future.

CBC Radio's Metro Morning host Ismaila Alfa spoke with Anushka Sokhi and Daria Mancino — part of the University of Toronto's 2021 and 2020 classes, respectively — about graduating during a pandemic.

This is the third instalment of a Metro Morning series exploring how the pandemic has changed people — and what comes next.
