This year, as many as 8,000 students will receive their degrees at Waterloo's spring and fall convocation ceremonies. One undergraduate from each Faculty and two graduate students will be awarded an Alumni Gold Medal, which symbolizes not only the student’s accomplishments, but also the proud tradition of exploration and leadership to which all of our alumni belong.

Alumni Gold Medals have graced the convocation gowns of our top students since 1970. The Royal Canadian Mint has produced these medals in the past — but in the true spirit of Waterloo, we’ve decided to make them ourselves.

Watch the Alumni Gold Medal creation below.
