From June 12- 15 Humber is throwing its biggest year-end celebration to applaud each student’s hard work and dedication to the finish line.
But before walking across the stage, here are seven things you should know leading up to your convocation:
1. RSVP to convocation
Every graduate must complete the application form on MyHumber. Whether you are attending the ceremony or not, this application will ensure you receive your credential. Be sure to review your personal information while you’re on MyHumber for the correct spelling of your name and address.
2. Find your ceremony
We know you’d love to crash every party, but you must be a graduating student or a guest of one for this hot ticket event. Find your convocation date here: http://humber.ca/convocation/spring-2018.
3. Dress for success
You will want to dress up for the occasion but you will also want to be comfortable. The last thing you want is to tumble your way across the stage. We suggest leaving the stilettos for the after party and perhaps wearing light-weight fabrics.
4. Prep the fam for the big day
Share the details with your family and friends who will be joining you at your graduation so they can plan their day. For friends and family who cannot join you, all Humber graduation ceremonies are broadcast live online. The live webcast will be available 15 minutes prior to the start of each ceremony.
5. You’d hate to be fashionably late
Arrive 1.5 hours before your ceremony to ensure you receive your gown and are seated with your classmates. Also, the guest seating fills up quickly, so get mom to come early as well to find a good seat.
6. Get the photos to prove it
Your family doesn’t need to leave their seat to get a great photo. Grad Images will take on stage photography during each ceremony. Portrait photos can also be taken at Convocation. Sittings are on a first-come, first-served basis one hour prior to each ceremony and after the ceremony. The proofs are viewed and available for purchase online within 48 hours. Please bring $10 for a cash deposit, which will be credited towards the purchase of a package.
7. Have patience
You’re sharing your big day with many other students and their families. Be courteous of others’ time and needs. This means accommodating those in need of accessibility in the parking lot, in the ceremony and at the reception.
