Larger Twitter walls and new photo capabilities will make Fall convocation a social affair! Join the CONVO-sation with #uwgrad2012.
Convocation is an exciting time when special guests, family and friends are welcomed from across the globe to celebrate academic achievement and excellence at our University.
With each new convocation ceremony, the University of Waterloo alumni family grows. Waterloo's 160,000 grads currently live in 144 countries around the world, linked by our global ambassadors and international chapters.
The ritual of Convocation remembers the roots of the university, and marks a beginning for the students as they enter a new stage in their lives. Both the symbols and the ceremony look back far beyond the beginning of the University of Waterloo, back to the centuries of university life in western civilization which Waterloo joined five decades ago.
