Spring Convocation 2018 wrapped up with the final two of 21 ceremonies being held.

The morning’s ceremony brought together graduates from the Faculty of Arts and Science and the School of Graduate Studies. The afternoon ceremony saw graduates from the Faculty of Law take the stage while an honorary degree was conferred upon award-winning architect Douglas Cardinal.

Over the past three week ceremonies have been held at Grant Hall and the main gym of the Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC), with thousands of new graduates being hooded and receiving their hard-earned degrees.
