Grad photos

GradImages is scheduled to be on campus January 19 to 31, 2019 and for March 5 to 7, 2019 for students who would like to have graduation photos or professional portraits (in case you want a LinkedIn photo).

Typically the last day GradImages is on campus is the busiest day, so don’t wait until the last minute to have your photos taken.

For more information on photos, visit GradImages online. Photographers will also be on campus during Convocation in case you would like to have photos taken then. Grad photos can also be taken at most professional portrait studios.

Note: Grad photos are not mandatory.

Programs for graduating students

The Advising & Involvement Centre (AIC) will offer a variety of sessions that will educate students on academics, careers, money management, graduation, and post-graduation information. Accompanied by exciting activities and contests, we will provide practical advice and support in a fun atmosphere while celebrating student’s accomplishments and potential. By connecting students with people who can offer advice, information, encouragement, and practical skills, our sessions will ease the transition out of university and into the “real world”.
