Our graduates have shelved their books, cleaned their lockers and are already into the next chapter of their lives. We’re incredibly proud of the more than 2,150 people who earned the privilege of walking across the stage at the university’s Spring Convocation ceremonies on June 20, 21, and 22 at the Winspear Centre, and we’re thrilled to be able to tell some of their stories.
School of Business
The most overwhelming response to what advice this year’s grads would give future students of the School of Business programs? Get involved—and don’t wait too long. This year’s class of business grads are socially and environmentally conscious, and believe in giving back to the community. No doubt they’ll make a splash in their respective industries and professions. It’s just a matter of when.
Each of this year’s Faculty of Nursing graduates made their way to the health-care field for different reasons: some were fascinated by the human body, some liked the challenge of deciphering the cause of an illness, and others were moved to share their sense of compassion and caring. But they all had one thing in common: a desire to make a difference.
Graduates of the Faculty of Health and Community Studies have expanded their minds, refined their points of view and sometimes challenged their beliefs to their very core. Now they’re ready to venture into the community and weave themselves into the social fabric of our society.
It’s not easy to jump out of bed after spending 12 hours at school the day before. But students in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications have been working toward their dream careers since they were children, and they’re each on their way to making those dreams come true.
