Information for

You have been part of the Grebel community in some capacity over the course of your degree. Our records indicate that you are close to graduation! For this reason, we want to seize the opportunity to celebrate your achievement with you! We do this at our own Grebel Convocation celebration event (not meant to replace uWaterloo's formal convocation). This afternoon event includes a gathering in the Humanities Theatre for graduates, family and friends followed by a reception back at Grebel.

Two things will help with our planning and preparation…

Firstly, we are collecting information about our graduates. This information ensures that you will be listed in the program and moves you from the status of being a current student to an alumna (complete with perks of attending alumni events, etc). If you have or are completing your studies in Fall 2017, Winter 2018, Spring 2018 or Fall 2018, we would like to know. Please fill in the Convocation Form regardless of whether you plan to participate in Grebel’s Convocation event.

Secondly, if you do plan to participate in Grebel’s Convocation event, it will take place on April 15, 2018 at 2:00 pm in the Humanities Theatre in Hagey Hall. Please indicate on the Convocation form whether you plan to attend this event.

We will be sending out Convocation invitations on your behalf. Please indicate on the Convocation Form whom you would like us to invite. If you'd like to send out a 'save the date' to friends and family, you may use the template on this 'Save the date' webpage.


To be considered for or to participate in the selection of Grebel's 2018 undergraduate Valedictorian, you must submit Grebel's Convocation form by February 25. Forms will continue to be collected until March 11 but after February 25 will not qualify for Valedictorian consideration or participation. On February 26, you will be notified of participating undergrads for the purpose of nominating a valedictorian. Nominations will close on February 27.

Further instructions about the day will follow in early April for those choosing to participate in this celebration of achievement.

If someone you know is planning to graduate and they haven’t received an email from Pam Bartel (Residence/Associate); Claudia Van Decker (Music), Rachel Reist (PACS), Kelly Brown (MPACS) or Birgit Moscinski or Melodie Sherk (MTS) have them contact their respective Administrative Assistant or let one of us know to contact them.
