The confetti — both virtual and otherwise — is ready.
When Brock University’s Spring Convocation kicks off Monday, June 13, the weeklong celebration will be paired with a variety of online and in-person enhancements to help graduates mark the milestone occasion.
While tickets are required for graduands and their two guests to attend in person, all nine Convocation ceremonies taking place from June 13 to 17 will also be livestreamed online at brocku.ca/livestream
Also making its return for the Class of 2022 is Brock’s online celebration toolkit, where graduands can download a variety of graphics for use on social media, including cover photos, wallpapers, animated confetti and Convocation-themed filters.
The toolkit includes a map of the University’s photo trail, which graduates are encouraged to travel down following their Convocation ceremony, striking a pose at some of Brock’s most iconic spots on campus, including the Maj.-Gen. Sir Isaac Brock statue, Pond Inlet and Alumni Field. Grads are encouraged to share their photos on social media with the hashtag #BrockUGrad so the University can celebrate with them.

Following each ceremony, graduates can also visit Alumni Alley in the Rankin Family Pavilion, where a celebration will be hosted by Alumni and Donor Relations.
Graduates will have the opportunity to take pictures at a variety of photo stations, connect with their peers over light refreshments, celebrate with family and friends, and interact with the faculty and staff who have supported them along their academic journey.
Brock’s newest alumni are encouraged to stay connected to the University by updating their contact information online. Graduates who update their information by Sunday, June 19 will be entered into a draw for an Apple Watch, gift cards and other prizes.
Also adding to the week’s Convocation festivities will be the GRAD2 Experience Area, which will welcome the newest graduates from the University’s Graduate Studies programs to celebrate with one another. Open daily from noon to 2 p.m. in the atrium of the Roy and Lois Cairns Health and Bioscience Research Complex, the space will offer refreshments, a photo backdrop, a candy bar and Brock swag giveaways, including packages of eco-friendly, seed-paper confetti.
