Brock University’s 109th Convocation went live as an online portal Friday, June 18, with nearly 3,300 students having their degrees conferred.
In 48 countries around the world, thousands of Brock students, their friends and families viewed the Convocation portal, including keynote addresses from Brock University President Gervan Fearon and Chancellor Hilary Pearson, along with video messages and greetings from student leaders, Deans and others.
New this year was a Celebration Wall, where grads, family, friends, faculty, staff and the wider community could post messages and photos of congratulations to the Class of 2021. To date, more than 440 messages have been posted and the Wall has been visited more than 8,400 times.
The wider Brock community is now invited to join the Class of 2021 in taking in the Spring Convocation experience as the Convocation portal is now open for all.
