UWO Convocation ’13
Even though it meant for two long, busy, and hectic days, I was lucky enough to attend two convocation ceremonies.
I am both a Brescia University College grad as well as a University of Western grad; therefore, I attend two separate convocations. I recapped the Brescia Convocation yesterday and will be recapping my second convocation ceremony for the University of Western Ontario (UWO) today.
My busy day began at noon when all of us grads and our families met at Brescia for appetizers and coffee prior to the convocation ceremony held on main campus at UWO which began at 3:00 pm.
While munching on delicious appetizers such as beef sliders and the most delicious asparagus bundles drizzled with buttermilk dressing, I had time to visit and take pictures with my family and friends.
And then, before you knew it, it was time to walk down Brescia hill toward main campus!
I felt like I was in a parade and so thankful I did not wear a high heal as I know I would have taken a tumble down that always dreaded Brescia hill…
Once we made it to main campus, our parents took their seats in Alumnae Hall where the ceremony was held while the grads got into their lines and prepared for convocation.
Convocation was exactly two hours (3:00 – 5:00 pm) and included Brescia grads as well as grads from Huron and the Faculty of Health Sciences.
When I was called up on stage I was hooded by the principal of Brescia and admitted to my degree. I then received my diploma and had a few pictures taken back stage with my diploma by photographers.
I am very proud to hold this diploma from the University of Western Ontario.
I can’t quite stress enough how much I’ve enjoyed my time at this university. I made the right decision to move to London from Yorkton to do my schooling here as both UWO and London feel like my homes.
A special thanks goes out to my parents today for supporting me and making it possible for me to obtain a degree from UWO.
I could have never in a million years done it without their love, support, and encouragement. So, thank you Mom and Dad for making it possible for me to be holding this degree in my hands today.
I now have a Bachelor of Science in Food and Nutrition and plan to do great things with it, but I can tell you one thing… I’m not done learning.
I hope you enjoyed my last grad recap post, but make sure to keep in touch as I will be sharing my future schooling and career plans with you in upcoming posts!
