Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) graduates from across the DVM and graduate programs will virtually celebrate their graduation this evening, June 24, 2021.
As part of this event, all graduates have been mailed convocation boxes containing items for their at-home celebration, along with their degree parchments. One item will be a postcard that graduates can scan for a video to allow them to feel the virtual experience of crossing the convocation stage.
University of Guelph awards for distinguished service and academic achievement will be highlighted on the convocation website, with photographs and citations of the medal winners.
Among the award recipients is Cristine Reitz, a doctoral student in OVC’s Department of Biomedical Sciences who will receive a Governor General’s Gold Medal.
The virtual event will also feature messages from senior administrators, honorary degree recipients, members of the graduating class and alumni, as well as a musical tribute from U of G grads Jenna and Stu Walker of the group The Reklaws.
Tune in this evening to the U of G Convocation website, June 24 at 7 p.m. to celebrate our graduates.
