It’s time to celebrate, graduates!
Convocation is a time to honour your accomplishments as a Lakehead University graduate and to share this celebration with your family and friends. Every spring, Lakehead University hosts Convocation ceremonies in both Thunder Bay and Orillia. It is an exceptional opportunity for you to join your classmates and professors in celebrating your time together and accomplishments at Lakehead.
Keep an eye on Lakehead International’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for posts about graduating students and live coverage of the ceremonies.
Convocation 2019 ceremonies will take place as follows:
Thunder Bay: May 31 & June 1
Orillia: June 8
Here’s what one of our 2018 graduates had to say at Convocation about his overall experience at Lakehead:
“Leaving your parents to go to school in a different country is not an easy thing to do. I felt like, in some ways, they were still spoon feeding me, so being here gave me perspective. I was on the varsity basketball team and my teammates made it a lot easier because I instantly had a support network to welcome me. The team made me feel like part of a family. I would tell my first year self to cherish everything.” - Matthew, Honours Bachelor of Commerce graduate from Australia
