There is no time at the University of Waterloo like convocation. I have had the honour of joining the celebrations of many thousands of students during my time as President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Waterloo and it truly never gets old.

Convocation and 200,000 Alumni: A Milestone Reached

convocation

This week the University of Waterloo will be hosting its Spring 2018 Convocation ceremonies. Every convocation is special and unique in its own way.

It is a momentous event for every one of our honoured graduates, but this Convocation will mark a very special milestone for our young university: our 200,000th graduate.

Reflections on a fine, full fall term: October in review

It’s hard to believe that the 2014-2015 fall term is already at the half way mark!

Evidence of the University of Waterloo’s growing momentum is mounting, with some excellent rankings results over the past two weeks, including from Research Infosource and Macleans.

Celebrating convocation, community & Canada: June in review

New alumni take on the world: June in review

I never get tired of Convocation.

Seeing our graduands cross the stage and getting the chance to speak with many of them is a perennial pleasure. It’s incredible what you hear. “I’m starting my own company,” is something our grads tell us more and more frequently. Some are going on to further studies, others have travel lined up, and many are making the transition to the workforce.
