Our Spring 2015 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 2,100 people who earned the privilege of walking across the stage at the university’s Convocation ceremonies on June 16, 17 and 18 at the Winspear Centre, and we’re thrilled to be able to tell some of their stories.
