Reasons to Attend Convocation

Convocation is when the University and broader community recognize your years of study and dedication, and join in celebrating your achievement! It is a formal acknowledgement of your development and a time to reflect on your accomplishment.

The convocation ceremony is filled with symbolism and tradition; your participation will define your place in history with other scholars and academics who have similarly assembled for centuries. It is the capstone of your entire educational experience and we strongly encourage you to attend.

Reconnect with faculty members who have significantly influenced your life, say goodbye to your fellow classmates, and provide the opportunity for your family and friends to acknowledge your achievement. Following the ceremony, you officially join the ranks of more than 40,000 distinguished University of Lethbridge alumni.
