About 5,000 new grads are joining the University’s alumni family this month through a virtual convocation.
Under COVID-19 restrictions, U of G is holding a single online event for grads of all seven colleges, numbering nearly 3,900 students for summer convocation and 1,100 for winter.
The June 24 event features a main video recording on the convocation website with messages from senior administrators, award-winning students, honorary degree recipients and international alumni.
From the main website, grads will be able to access college videos to hear addresses by honorary degree recipients.
A highlight will be a recorded roll call of grads’ names read alongside depictions of their submitted photos or videos.
Earlier, all graduates were mailed convocation boxes containing their degree parchments along with items for their at-home celebration.
